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.
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and in the old days silver, but this has now been replaced by a lighter metal.
