|In about 1984,
Ruth Dodsworth, Dance Teacher for
Betty Lupton's Ladle Laikers from
at the Redcar Folk Festival and came across the Betley Window in the
form of a set of three postcards. Ruth decided to make a copy using
appliqué, and to mount each of the Window's panels in its own frame.
So the postcard pictures were photocopied and enlarged, then used as a pattern from which material shapes could be cut. These shapes were strengthened with iron-on Vilene before being sewn on with a sewing machine using a zig-zag stitch. The piece was completed around 1985/1986.
