Southern Chinese Textiles

Judith Symmonds came and gave us a talk about
her collection of Southern Chinese Textiles.
I had seen her last year at our Embroidery Guild and knew that
Alveva Quilters would love to see and hear all about the textiles.
Judith is a wonderful speaker telling and showing us
the individual pieces,how they were made and some of the stories
behind them. The members were able

fantastic workmanship.
