When Sara Impey came to talk to us about Coggeshall Tambour Lacehttp://www.coggeshallmuseum.org.uk last year and mentioned that she also did a talk on quilting I never imagined the amazing quilts she would bring to show us this month. 

Sara originally trained as a newspaper journalist and every inch of her quilts echoes her love of words. The quilts were imaginative, amusing and so well stitched, many with social comments written in the lettering. Sara, a textile artist, produces such modern interesting pieces of work which were appreciated by everyone present at our evening meeting.

Jane and Alan Lewis brought a selection of their turned wooden items for us to buy to mount our lace. With spangles, decorated pins and many other wooden tools to choose from, which made for a pleasant evening.
