95 members and 6 visitors attended the April meeting. The meeting featured trading tables organised by individual members and also for Caring and Sharing. Jan Preston was the April speaker with her exhibition of textile art pieces. Jan explained some of the reasons behind, and the techniques adopted, for the creation of these unique pieces which represent memories of her father-in-law Wilfred Preston and his friend Will White and wife Halinka. The photo gallery below includes photos of some these pieces. Thank you Jan for sharing your memories and creative journey with us.
