I am married and living in the South West of England, although originally from South Wales. I have been involved in some form of craft or sewing for as long as I can remember, having been taught to sew and knit by my mother. I love patchwork and quilting, although I do not enjoy hand sewing, that said I do tend to prefer more traditional quilts rather than modern quilts, although following the Conference at Torquay I have joined the Modern Quilt Guild. I have also recently joined the Miniature Quilt Group although this is something I have yet to try. Apart from quilting I am mad about dogs, and have a west highland terrier called Mack who is the proud owner of several patchwork quilts.
