About me

Occupation Maker
Location Nottingham, United Kingdom
Introduction Fabric has been part of my life for as long as I can remember from the layers of tablecloths on my Grandmothers front room table to my Mothers fabric scrap cupboard in the kitchen next to the old boiler. I remember the colours of my clothes from being very small, the fabric of our deck chairs and the clothes my dolls wore. Today I work and teach at Hope and Elvis in Nottinghamshire – my perfect job! My home is filled with quilts, wool blankets, eiderdowns and scraps of fabric. They are there because I love them. I gain comfort from them and they make me feel happy. I hold fabric with precious care and I have been caught on more than one occasion stroking it! I long to know its history and wish it could speak to me and tell me its life story.
Interests Sewing, vintage fabric, patchwork, doll making, reading, family life.
Favorite Movies Little women, You've got mail, How to make an American quilt, all things by Jane Austen.
