Gilli entertains Honiton Craft Club.

GILLI Cooper, chairman of Honiton Craft Club, was guest speaker at the group’s April meeting last week - and had members in stitches.

Stitches was the theme of her talk. It revealed her life through all aspects of needlework - from the age of four, when she started making fabric bags, to the present day.

Making things from fabric is in her blood.

Her grandmother and father both inspired her from a young age.

Her numerous projects enthralled the audience and entertained at the same time. Stories were laden with humorous asides and she exhibited some of the garments she told more amusing tales about.
