I nave always loved textiles, but for many years my interests were limited to knitting, crochet and dressmaking. Way back in the early 1990s I discovered spinning and weaving and through these I became interested in embroidery and eventually in quilting. Sometime ago I became a member of the Guild, but for various reasons I let my membership lapse and concentrated on my weaving. My interest in textile art has been reawakened and I decided to rejoin the Guild and also the Contemporary Quilt Group.
At the moment I am following Philippa Naylor's online course and am enjoying the challenge of precision piecing,(not really my thing!), applique and lots of other things. Some time ago I attended a course with Philippa and learned Free motion quilting and that is what I love doing most!
