All of my life I have loved to make things by hand, including sewing, needlecrafts, painting and drawing. I have been interested and passionate about quilts, and patchwork since I joined a quilting group in California where I lived for several years.
I love going to quilt and textile exhibitions in particular, and find it hard to walk past a fabric shop, or charity shop, (great places to find possible works in progress or an excuse to begin one). If I do walk past I usually retrace my steps ! The same applies to bookshops, especially the craft section are hard to ignore, as are vintage and craft fairs. I recently went to one and came away with a large quilt that had sadly been cut in half, but amin the process of making a crib quilt from one piece, and hope to use fabric from the other bits to put towards a recycled quilt.
I live in the Northwest of England, in Lancashire and welcome information on exhibitions, craft fairs etc.
