Hi, I'm Louisa, and I love to craft! Over the years I have taught myself so many different crafts, including tapestry and cross stitch, batik, card making, quilling, knitting, crochet... you name it, I've probably tried it. But it wasn't until my twenties that I first discovered quilting, back in the days when it was cardboard templates and scissors :) I remember creating a incredibly bright batik penguin panel that I made up into a quilt for a friend's baby, poor child's probably still traumatised.
However, it wasn't until my thirties that the quilting bug completely took hold. Having been made redunant from our publishing jobs, my husband Justin and I took a round the world trip, which was totally amazing by the way. It was on a rainy day in Australia when I bought a couple of quilting magazines to read in our campervan when inspiration hit - I decided then and there that I wanted to run my own quilting business. Or course it wasn't going to be that easy, I needed to be retrained in retail for one thing.
