Autumn 2018 Meeting of The Society

Cosmic Chick Tapestries

Moyra Fye talked about the Heritage Open Days.  The theme was ‘Extraordinary Women’ and, of course, Alice was an extraordinary woman.  A patchwork group from Frodsham - Cosmic Chicks - approached the church with tapestries done on an Alice theme.  Each member picked an Alice subject out of a hat and then had to produce a work on that theme. So if you picked the Mad Hatter that was your subject.  One thing they had to  put into each picture was a white rabbit.   Their work has  been presented to the Lewis Carroll Society.

The tapestries can be seen below.  Just click on one to see a full screen view.
