I am passionate about stitching, and an experienced teacher of quilting, design and crafts. I love supporting and helping students to share my passion. When I was growing up, there was always some sewing; spinning; weaving; hand dyeing ;craft making etc., going on around me at home, and I actually made my first dress when I was only 11 years old, with my Mums help, of course! I loved any opportunity to sew and create ideas from then on. I opened a small patchwork supplies business at home, when our family were young, and started teaching patchwork. This grew from a hobby to a career, and I have been teaching for the last 25 years. Now I am putting all those skills into writing clear and detailed patterns for projects. The instructions are supported by photographs at every stage. My selection of patterns is very varied, and will have appeal to a range of abilities, from beginner to the more experienced. They make fantastic presents as well as being great for personal use and enjoyment. All proceeds from selling my patterns will be given to a charity which helps to lift destitute women out of poverty. They are taught to sew and given a second hand sewing machine.
