Pensilva WI Members meet ‘Mrs Marvellous’

A memory quilt for Joanna’s father, who had dementia, using images and items from his life to assist with his memory.

As everyone knows, the WI is marvellous, but members of Pensilva WI met the real ‘Mrs Marvellous’ when Joanna Shepherd came to talk about her life as a textile artist. She has had to overcome many life and health issues over the years, but has always wanted to help people cope with dementia or bereavement in her own way. This has led to her producing some wonderful quilts and pictures using material from loved ones’ clothes or creating something to assist with dementia. Truly a memory quilt.
