|Ann Ladbury - alive and well and living in Yorkshire|
Many of us have always made clothes, from simple dresses to coats and suits and my own inspiration has been derived from books and television programmes in the past under the presentation of Ann Ladbury. As well as being a skilled dressmaker with a famous family background in tailoring, Ann is a great writer who has produced dozens of books on sewing. She is a valued member of the Society of Women Writers and Journalists and has a great personality - well, she headed so many TV programmes for 20 years. How I wish she had been chosen to present this new TV production which does need some pepping up.
