May Meeting

 Textile artist, Sally Hutson visited us on 3rd May.

We were treated to a lively explanation of how  here interest in fabrics, sewing and creating grew.  She told us of the process of developing each idea she had brought and the pieces were all passed round for us to examine closely.  In addition several large "kimono" style garments were displayed and she ware an attractive patchwork jacket herself.

Each of her creations are unique and often include vintage fabrics and those with special memories.  Much of her work is commissions and she had had success at quilt shows in this country and abroad.  

Sally explained her use of paint and stitching on her pieces and was generous with her tips and ideas.
