8:00am Sunday 13th October 2013 in News
They enjoyed a lively talk by Olga Perney, of Skipton's Russian Tearoom, who brought along a large selection of Russian folk costume, including some spectacular and beautiful head gear which everyone enjoyed trying on.
She talked about the history and customs of the different regions of her native country and their influence on the traditional styles of dress, many of which were richly embroidered and designed to be worn in layers for warmth.
