1979 Photograph of Loretta Spears

Loretta Spears Holding Finished Needlework
Two new eBay sales of photographs of Loretta Spears have come to light, thanks to the sharp eyes of LH.  This photograph is dated July, 1979 and shows Loretta holding a piece of what looks like crewel with other finished framed pieces on the table in front of her.  I think this is probably an interior photograph taken in her shop, Fiesta Needleart, which was located in Arvada, Colorado.  This is an 8x10 inch photograph taken for the Denver Post.

As always, I have no financial interest in the outcome of any eBay auction.
