1974 Photograph of Loretta Spears in Fiesta Needleart

Loretta in Her Shop, Courtesy of Lexibell-racing
Two new eBay sales of photographs of Loretta Spears have come to light, thanks to the sharp eyes of LH.  This photograph is dated October 16, 1974 and is 10x8 inches.   Loretta herself is in a ruffled blouse and standing bending over the table, looking at the latch hook rug.

Information on Back of Denver Post Photograph

The back of the photograph reads "OCT 16 1974 Yarn Shop Owner Consults With Instructor Mrs. Loretta Spears, standing, owner of the Fiesta Yarn Shop, discusses hooked rug with Mrs. Audrey Lyons, new instructor-sales man for shop at 5752 Wadsworth Blvd." Credit: Denver Post.

The photos above are courtesy of the eBay seller Lexibell-racing.  As always I have no financial interest in the outcome of any eBay sale of Loretta's work.
