Springfield Quilters

At Springfield Quilters tonight we had Helen Howes as our speaker. She lives near Beccles and describes herself as an artist/craftsmaker. She gave a lively and interesting talk about her work.

John her partner/ taxi driver/ minder of the sales table came into the room carrying a huge suitcase. Helen then proceeded to pull works of art out of it - like a magician. What a vast array of work, and like artists she works in a series. I loved the series of trees especially the cream one, lots of lovely textures!

This one reminded me of my trip down under to N.Z and the Silver Ferns (the national symbol for N.Z). There were quilts in every size as well as flat dolls and pillow dolls to look at.

This piece of work being held up by Delia is going to be a workshop at Keene Quilters, next October.
