About me

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 dream job!  My home is filled with quilts, wool blankets, eiderdowns and scraps of fabric.  They are there because I love each one of 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.
