It has been one of the most exciting and rewarding collections I have worked on . Award winning Australian textile artists such as Jenny Bowker, Sue de Vanny, Jan Frazer, Saffron Craig, Dale Rollerson, Julie Haddrick , Dijaane Cevaal and Kay Haerland have transformed photographic textile panels into textile masterpieces through a variety of techniques . They are simply amazing. The exhibition has been hosted by the Australasian Quilt Convention. The opening Day had a massive attendance I’m sure it was record numbers. So much more on show here this year .
“This is a piece of Reece Scannell fabric that I embroidered and appliqued to give dimensions. I painted the background and leaves and added the Waratahs as a broderie perse applique. A bright wall hanging for our home ”

Reece Scannell came into the textile business after an illustrious international career as a photographer with his pictures featuring in premier exhibitions in Australia and Europe.
His passion for fashion lured him from behind the lens, but Reece has applied a similar focus on unique, one-off imagery in hand screening textiles for clothing, interior design, quilting, patchwork and other forms of crafting.
Reece’s textilework is as fascinating as his background with his photographs being featured in renowned collections at the National Library of Australia, the Australian Film Institute and the Australian Film, Television and Radio School.
He has even participated in archaeological expeditions to Greece and Egypt with resulting photographic exhibitions in the British Museum.
Reece Scannell Mode in Australia is now ranked in the top Australian design companies with his outstanding creativity in lifestyle fabrics, including hand woven shot cotton with individual threads dyed to create a distinctive silky sheen effect.
