Three interesting speakers entertained and inspired in the field of textiles and fashion.
"The Reluctant Quilter"
Chrisse is a well known textile artist who works with her own hand dyed and painted fabrics which are quilted and sometimes embellished with hand stitch. Chrisse brought many examples of her work for us to enjoy.
Saleem from Fabric Freedom
Saleem talked about the design process through to the use of "Fabric Freedom" fabrics in quilts. And, of course, there was plenty of fabric to add to your stash!
100 years of Fashion - from Panniers to Bustles
Liz showed us her fascinating Costume collection, which dates from the 18th Century to the 20th Century, and included appropriate underwear!
An excellent day.
