Lynne Pretty

On Wednesday evening it was The Kings Lynn Embroidery Guild
meeting and Lynn Pretty came along to talk about
her 'Travels Textiles and Quilts'.
She showed us some textiles she had collected from around the world
and the memories she had acquiring them.
She then went on to show us her quilts and wall hangings.
Her first Quilt based around India Inspiration.
It was Exhibited at the V&A!
A lot of Lynne's work is based on history and source inspiration.
Which was lovely to see. Her work involves mixed media and
tightly packed machine quilting.
At the end she answered lots of questions from the group and
shared how she layers up her fabrics.
It was a wonderful inspirational evening,
Thank you Lynne.
