Frances is a farmer's wife from East Yorkshire and has been making lace since 1967 and teaching from 1984.

She presently teaches seven classes a week and is tutor on several lace courses around the country.

Her hobby is collecting lace and costume and enjoys giving talks about the history of the pieces; often showing off the collars like a fashion show to emphasize their beauty.
