April Meeting

 "Lock Down and Love it" seems an unlikely title for our April meeting, in view of our personal memories of that time. 

However, it was chosen by our speaker: textile artist Moira Neal for her second visit to Cosby Quilters.  Her positive attitude to her own experiences was refreshing as well as a little reminder of what many of us did at that time.

The positive slant covered teaching her 17 year old grand-daughter to drive on  relatively quiet roads while delivering the items she had produced for the NHS and care homes.  Even her array of colourful and often numerous face masks led to an artistic arrangement, not to mention her personal ones hung on a useful rack made from recycled materials.

She was also energetic and imaginative in the kitchen producing a variety of preserves from surplus fruits.

Moira brought her colourful and attractive cards and led a successful workshop earlier in the day as well as large quilts.

Her entertaining style gave us a very enjoyable evening and a positive feast for the eyes.
