I began quilting in the 1970's and was the founder member of Gwent Quilters. I gave talks and taught patchwork & quilting for several years before the demands of children, career and renovating houses pulled me away from my passion for textiles. In recent years I have rediscovered that passion, have rejoined the Guild and discovered a whole new world of textiles and techniques. I'm slowly getting to grip with these new innovations and, as a painter, I'm fascinated by the cross over potential of fabric, paint, foiling etc.
Being coordinator for Region 12 gave me a wonderful opportunity to meet many interesting and talented people and I'm learning so much from them. Now, as newsletter editor for Region 12 I'm continuing to enjoy this contact.
