Here she is finishing by hand one of her indigo dyed garments with some of her works lying ready for sale in front.  Her cushions are usually made from sturdy linen and hemp cloths from France and are expertly finished with piping, zips and good quality new feather fillings.  Her bolsters are a useful addition for comfort and colour on easy chairs and sofas and their ends in colourful stripes are most decorative. Polly is wearing one of her own design shift-shirts which are easy/casual work-wear.  She is designing a new range of clothing this year - ask her about it at the next fair.  She is organising a rather special Fair near Stroud on May 12th 13th, Sat. Sun. at Bisley Village Hall - there will be some quite exceptional pieces for sale (many from the East) to see and buy;  which  are similar to those demonstrated at the lectures given, part of the World Textile Event in Stroud that week.  Your chance to learn and identify textile treasures!
