Helen Adelaide Lamb (1893-1981), born Prestwick, Lamb studied at Glasgow Art School, and taught Art at St Columba’s School, Kilmacolm, from 1918-1949. A ‘Glasgow Girl’ artist, calligrapher and teacher, she was part of the Scottish embroidery revival. The Church of Scotland acquired the rights, 1927, to print copies of her cradle roll (see below). Lamb was commissioned to produce the Church of Scotland’s Loyal Addresses to King Edward VIII, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, all of which are conserved in Windsor Castle. She died at Dunblane, where she had a studio.
