Altrincham’s February zoom meeting at 10.15am on the 10th is by Helen Barnes. The title of her talk is “ From Indian Embroidery to North Country Quilts”
 “I am an artist living in Ilkley, Yorks. I have spent many years working in textiles, first as a teacher and more recently through running workshops alongside exhibiting my work. I am inspired by the artisans who have passed down iconography and skills from one generation to the next; mother to daughter, master to apprentice. The textures, colours and images from my research form the essence of my hand embroidered and quilted artifacts. While travelling I keep a sketchbook as well as taking photographs which enable me to paint and hand embroider contemporary compositions that reflect our cultural heritage. I hope to inspire others to enjoy the art of hand stitching and to take pleasure in our amazing textile past.”
