I have been a member of the guild since 1982 and was President from 2005 to 2008. I have been quilting since 1974. My work now features contemporary and art quilt techniques such as indigo dyeing, shibori, vintage Japanese fabrics and free machine quilting. I am a teacher, author and quilt judge and I teach here in the UK and overseas. I have been teaching City & Guilds Patchwork & Quilting since 1994 and now run classes in East London and by distance learning through my "Micro Centre" and since October 2015 at Missenden Abbey, Bucks. I am also a tutor at the world renowned West Dean College, near Chichester.
Through my interest in Japanese textiles I have become a tour leader on specialist Textile and Quilt holidays for Arena Travel, in particular to Japan. I have led two very successful trips there so far, you can read all about both of these trips on my blog. The next trip is planned for 2017.
