I have been a member of QGBI for over ten years and am very grateful to those who introduced me. I was a Trustee between 2012 and 2018 which gave me opportunities I never anticipated - involvement in the direction of the Guild and overseas exhibitions featuring strongly. My preference is for contemporary quilting though a well designed in terms of colour and beautifully quilted traditional quilt can still catch my breath. I am a member of CQ and have participated in many Journal Quilt challenges, a topic on which I give talks. As well as P&Q, I hold a C&G Diploma in Hand Embroidery and use my learning in that discipline to embellish my quilts. I am currently studying the History of Art at London's Birkbeck College.
