I have been quilting and patchworking since the 1980s when I became interested through some classes being run in Edinburgh. Susequently we moved to Newcastle upon Tyne where I enrolled in classes at The Shipley Art Gallery, became a member of a group working there with Helen Joseph and have moved on to become a member of my local regional committee and then a Guild Trustee. I have been involved in working on our Administration and more recently on Membeship matters.
I like all forms of patchwork and quilting and have tried most of them without, as yet, finding a specific area on which I want to focus so I could be called a bit of a dabbler.
I enjoy the friendship found through patchwork and quilting and have met many lovely people through my involvement with The Quilters' Guild. I would recommend it to anyone - as a way to learn, a way to meet like-minded folk and a way to support the work of The Quilters' Guild in helping more people to have the same experience.
