Generation 3 - Maggie Patterson 1940-

Diosma’s daughter, Maggie, was brought up on the Eyre Peninsula. She followed the family tradition of winning prizes in local Agricultural Shows for embroidery. Maggie chose a different path, and became a machine embroiderer.

Maggie had no daughters, and so, at least for this generation, the family tradition of embroidery seems to have come to an end.
