At the September the speaker was Jennifer Hughes: “Culture at their fingertips – the Hill Tribe People of Thailand”. 

Jennifer trained as a Geography teacher, has an interest in needlework and lived for a number of years in Thailand.  
Jennifer explained that the Thai government recognises 6 different groups of Hill Tribe people and they all have their own distinctive individual style.

The garments and head dresses are decorated with stitching, seeds of wild grasses, dyed chicken feathers,

and in the old days silver, but this has now been replaced by a lighter metal.
Jennifer showed garments from the Akha tribe, the Mien (who are superb embroiderers), the Lisu, the Lahu and the Hmong.
