Our speaker for March was Diana Barrett a member of York Embroiderers' Guild and the bursary winner for 2011. She is pictured outside the Folk Hall with her beautiful jacket created as part of her degree work at Hull.
Her talk traced the cjhanging attitudes to women and embroidery through time, and featured embroidery as far apart as Bess of Hardwick and an embroidered telephone screen from the 1930's. It was all very interesting.
