About Me

Sudbury, Suffolk, United Kingdom
I am a textile artist living on the Suffolk Essex border. I am a member of the Out of the Fold Textile Group and the newly formed Spotlight Textiles. I am the Principal Tutor for Creative Stitch which offers courses in Creative Patchwork and Quilting and Creative Stitch Textiles. I teach each year at the Knitting & Stitching Shows and Festival of Quilts. I also offer workshops and talks to groups throughout the UK in person and via zoom. With a foot in both camps I am also a member of the QGBI and the specialist Contemporary Quilt Group and STARS (formerly Suffolk West Embroiderers Guild)

TThis is a piece called Sweet Diamonds made for the Diamond Jubilee challenge as part of the exhibition last weekend by the Essex and Suffolk Quilters group based in Colchester. Not quite the traditional red, white and blue but more experiments using quality street wrappers and lots of layers of sheers all stitched and burnt back. I am fast running out of wrappers so thank goodness Christmas is coming - save all your QS cellophanes for me.
