2:00 – 3:00 Illustrated talk ‘Title…… I had absolutely no idea!’ By Abbie Anne Searl
Continuing with our cheerful colour theme,
Abbie Anne writes: ‘A show and tell with bits for all! There’s some very old, direct from Camelford Museum, there’s some old from across the water. There’s also my own work, some traditional, some weird but all very colourful! A light hearted visual through the journey of a quilter who found a passion by accident in Trago’.
