After a busy morning sewing members sat back and enjoyed a colourful talk from Ann Rippin.

???????????????????????????????

She gave a very interesting talk on Laura Ashley fabrics but she used her interviews with other people and their memories connected with them as her theme. She had examples of early quilts and articles in Laura Ashley patchwork pieces and dresses which were largely hers. She had been given many pieces of Laura Ashely fabric and items which she used to create modern pieces often on the theme of people’s memories. She was very knowlegeable, lively and interesting.
