About me

Location United Kingdom
Introduction I'm a retired ex teacher and librarian and very enthusiastic quilter. I used to regard myself as a quilting librarian, a repository of information leaning towards the traditional side but now my energies are concentrated on using up my stash and completing projects. My skills are average but I continue to learn and improve and I'm quite prolific. I belong to various groups from the national Quilters Guild, to the 300 strong Oast Quilters based in East Kent, Quay Quilters in Faversham who hold a biannual show and the Bonny Quilters foursome who are former machine knitters. I also belong to an informal house group called Usual Suspects. We like to eat lunch and chat and travel together. I also like to get together with a couple of Crab & Winkle friends and spend a day sewing and catching up. I've attended all the Festivals of Quilts at the NEC and try to attend another national show as well, Sandown or Malvern and The Quilters Guild AGM and Region Two show at Hever. I've also been to Paducah and Sisters twice and Houston four times.. I went to QuiltCon in Pasadena 2016 and 18 and Austin 2020 and in 2018 and 19 to the Alsace Quilt show in the Val D'argent.
