St. Lunaire-Griquet - Handicrafts

Winnie Bussey lives in St. Lunaire-Griquet, and works as a mail carrier for the postal service. In her time off, Winnie makes various different kinds of crafts. Not only is she a painter, but she also does knitting, quilting, and embroidery. Some of her craft objects are traditional, such as her thrum knit socks, but others are more innovative, like her velour applique flower quilt. In her craft practice, Winnie often makes use of recyclable objects, such as old windows, pieces of driftwood and second-hand fabrics.
