Loughborough Monitor - 11th April 1975

In the picture, left to right, are Mary Edgar, Betty Thompson, Betty Macdiarmid, Anne Greenwood and Dorothy Organ.

Museum Team note: Helen Dorothy Organ (known as Dorothy), was a founder member of Quorn WI and extremely talented in the fields of craft and leatherwork which she taught at evening classes in different parts of the county. She wrote a very successful 'Suede and Leather Wear' book published by Dryad in 1972.
