September Meeting

Embellished Character Figures with Kathryn Thompson

Kathryn, a GPQ member, is a life long stitcher - like many other speakers. She learnt a great deal from her Mum and loved being given the scraps left over from her dressmaking. Kathryn went to Teacher Training College in the early 1970’s and then taught needlework in Birmingham and in Blackpool. She will be bringing her collection of embellished character figures, which are made completely out of fabric (and stuffing). In her talk she'll explain the tools and techniques used in the construction of the figures. You can see some examples of Kathryn's work here.
