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.

Blackthorpe barns exhibition now open

The Quilters Guild Big Exhibition is well worth a visit this weekend. Lots of beautiful traditional quilts on display including my favourite which is a reproduction of the Billings Coverlet from the Quilters Guild Collection.

Tin Hut Textiles and Out of the Fold both have a display of work at the exhibition too.
Here is part of my Snape Maltings inspired piece which forms part of the THT exhibit.

And hanging as part of the whole exhibit.

Blackthorpe Barns Big Exhibition

Both of my exhibiting groups Out Of The Fold and Tin Hut Textiles are affiliated to the Quilters Guild and will have stands at the exhibition at Blackthorpe Barns near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk from Sat 30th April until Monday 2nd May 2016

Out of the Fold will mount a display called 'Out of Line' with all twelve members exhibiting a piece only 6" wide but at any length on their own style.

Tin Hut Textiles have a series of work inspired by Snape Maltings all mointed onto deed edged canvasses. This will serve as a taster for  a major new exhibition at Snape in September 2016.
