My love story with textiles started a long time ago. As a child, I used to spend the after-school afternoons with my aunt who was a bespoke dressmaker and my grandma who had a small business sewing and renting fancy costumes. I would spend hours playing with the swatches in my aunt’s studio and according to some, that was the only way to make me be quiet for a while…erm…!
Now as then “playing with fabric” is something that makes me tick, relaxes me and takes me to a special place. In my 15 years of quilting I’ve learned to make fun of my mistakes and advocate my right to “artistic licence” 🙂
I love creating original designs and expressing myself through colour, shape and texture – and embracing any unexpected result…!
