About Us

Monika Brueckner, Marilyn Hall, Caroline Hibbs, Jean Kirk, Kay Swancutt

“Thread: a thin cord of twisted yarn used especially in sewing and weaving.”  (OED)
The threads which join members of Quinary together are a passion for and a commitment to textiles.
Members of the group graduated from Middlesex University with a degree in ‘Embroidered Textiles’, and then formed an exhibiting group. We are a diverse group who originate from various areas in England and also Germany; our skills range from hand and machine stitching, knitting and weaving, which is reflected in the variety of our exhibitions. There have been some exciting venues for these, including Coventry Cathedral, Germany, Canada, Walcot Chapel in Bath and the Lansdown gallery in Stroud.
Our aim is to explore and investigate the boundaries of textile techniques and to continue enjoying working together, continually asking questions about our own and others work.
