I have been quilting for nearly 40 years, originally taught by Dieuwke Philpott. Since then I have attended many workshops run by teachers with kudos – Lynne Edwards, Gail Lawther, Siripan Kidd etc. They have led me to better work, more inspiration and the confidence to try new things. Although I still am grounded in traditional patchwork and quilting, I now like to branch out somewhat and have experimented and teach land/seascapes. I run a number of workshops for local groups in the East Anglia region and for quilting shops. You can email me for a brochure and prices.
I belong to many groups – I set up Mimram Quilters with friends who had also been in Dieuwke’s classes, and became Chair of this and Icknield Quilters in time. I am now always doing publicity for their exhibitions! As my main profession is editing, indexing and proofreading, in addition I help to proofread Bits and Pieces for Region 7, and I am now the editor for the In the Frame newsletter for the Trad Group.
I also like to write the occasional article – I have appeared in The Quilter and British Patchwork and Quilting. One of the proudest things that has happened to me is to have one of my quilts in Lynne Edwards Appliqué book.
The photo is of a quilt I recently finished for a friend's daughter's wedding. It is based on a couple of patterns in Angle Antics.
