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.
