Speaker for July Lynda Kinnard
Lynda's talk is entited "Rug Making Techniques - not for walking on!"
This is a modern take on traditional crafts - prodding, lockerhooking, hooking, weaving etc for bags, hats, cushions, seat pads, corsages etc
She is very passionate about the creativity that working with fabrics and threads gives you and is always looking for new ways to use them. There are two aspects to her work. The first is using her sewing machine for free machine embroidery and creating textured fabrics from all sorts of materials including patchwork, applique and quilting. The second is weaving, spinning and dyeing and all forms of rugmaking techniques, particularly using recycled fabrics to make hats, bags, mirror frames, wall hangings etc.
