This obession started in my teens when I made my first quilt, and if I remember rightly, I designed it myself even back then!
Originally an East London girl, I now live with my very own Northerner in Middlesbrough in the Northeast where I work in my studio (spare bedroom) designing and creating new quilt, cushion and EPP kits and patterns using some of the beautiful designer fabrics available today. I also write a regular blog and Newsletter, and contricute to some of the country's best quilting magazines - you can find out more about those projects here.
I am so lucky to be able to do a job I love, being surrounded by colour and texture all day while also using the brain cells to work out patterns, dimensions and technique, I call it my free therapy. Passing this joy on was idea behind my Pre-Cut Party where every month my Newsletter subscribers are emailed a free pattern, not only to encourage them to get out those precious pre-cuts, but also to try something different or to discover a new technique... after all we never stop learning. Continuously discovering new things keeps us active, healthy and alive - as a customer recently told me, she was glad her stash was so large as it will ensure she lives as long as possible to use it all!
