Our speaker for April is Edwina Mackinnon. Her talk is entitled "The Story so Far".
She loves anything and everything to do with textiles but especially stitch, by hand and machine, dyeing fabrics with indigo and Procion dyes and printing with whatever she fancies! She has just started to explore eco printing and is loving the results.
She has taught textile related subjects for almost 30 years, including City & Guilds courses. She now teaches her own courses and one-off workshops wherever she is asked to go.
An example of her recent work
She enjoys being out and about, taking photographs and collecting new ideas. At home she loves to cook and has a rather large collection of cookbooks. She is always trying out new recipes! She also enjoys pottering about in her garden and relaxing with a good book and there’s always a knitting project to work on.
She also enjoys spending time with her family and has four grandchildren who all live nearby.
