Description

This has become a touring exhibition entitled ‘Worn Threads’ and we thank Marion Robertson for being our hostess and showing us around the exhibition.

We start off with Marion’s own piece which was/is inspired by the handbag she used back in the 1960’s when she attended a wedding (and there are pictures to prove it!)

Sandy Snowdon (the chair of the group) was inspired when she was travelling to wonder how do people who sew waterproof garments keep the seams watertight!-an interesting piece developped.

Kate Findlay had a piece on display, very disco inspired,  in which she has added LED lighting.

Another piece was inspired by the ration books and wartime stuff, including making a coat from a wool blanket, and another Mum (Ruth) never did get round to altering her son’s military trousers- too late now!!

Also worth a mention is the dress from Annie called 10,000 apples and wait for the killer shoes from Kate Crossley.
