My first foray into patchworking was in 1970 and I have been addicted ever since. Although I also knit, embroider and tatt, patchwork and quilting remain my first love. Totally addicted to hoarding even the smallest of scraps, I have come to realise that the time to use them is now, before they swamp my studio.
I have recently become interested in dyeing my own fabrics to use in my patchwork and this is an area I wish to pursue in the coming months. Meanwhile, I am exploring the Oulipian methods of imposing multiple restrictions on your work as the means of triggering ideas and inspiration.
