March meeting

“The story sew far”is not a typing error but the name of the talk given by Liliane Taylor on Tuesday. I had been lucky to meet Liliane at summer school last week so had an idea about her work.She loves to use antique pieces within her large montages.Each picture really does tell a story.018

For instance the piece on the left was one of her earliest and tells of her mother,friend and self.023

The one above was completed with the use of an embellisher. The night rushed by and it was 9.oo before she was able to begin to pack up and return home. We had all had a lovely experience an have gone home full of inspiration.

At the start of the meeting we were able to celebrate the hanging of our market piece, which looks really good in its new home.008

Ann also asked for show and tell items. Eileen showed us her latest work, a sampler for a godson that was full of symbolism.013

Brenda had recently bought a book about bags. This had really inspired her and she brought along half a dozen that she had just worked.017

Apologies that I do not have a newsletter to attach but many of the messages were just reminders. Please encourage Ann to take photos at the next meeting as unfortunately I have to send my apologies.
