Our March meeting was not only our first attempt as a group to have a go at making some 'Horrockses' dresses but also our first meeting in our new home! We have moved to St. Andrew's Church Hall in Ashton and we celebrated our new facilities by cracking open the 'bubbly'!
The committee had been hard at work seeking out books, magazine articles and other information on the dress styles and fabric designs made by this Preston firm in the '40s and '50s. Some of us can even remember owning one of the dresses!
... using all kinds of techniques ...
Since we didn't have a tutor, we could all be in the same room. In the afternoon one of our members, Marie, came to give us a talk on 'Timeworn Treasures'.
