Quoted in Handmade Living Magazine

I love it when I see my name in print.  I am lucky enough to say it's happened a few times over the years for various different publications, both national and local, but I love it even more when it's about quilting. 

So I was very excited to be quoted in an article for Handmade Living Magazine. 

The article is written by the lovely Vicky Guthrie, all about the resurgence in craft courses and workshops, and it looks like this:

Quite cool to be mentioned on the same page as Kirstie Allsop!

I am mentioned and quoted because I am doing the City and Guilds Level 3 Certificate in Patchwork and Quilting via distance learning.  I know it's small but hopefully you can read my paragraph!!   

I also have a few other irons in the publishing fire as it were, which is very exciting.  As soon as I'm in print again I shall let you know ;-)

In other quilty news, I have finally finished hand quilting the quilt for my friend Sarah, and I just have two sides of the binding left to stitch, which I am saving for craft club tomorrow night. 

I also helped my friend Emma baste a single bed sized quilt for her daughter.  My large kitchen floor was perfect for the job and it was a great team effort, as Emma is now 34 weeks pregnant.  That bump was getting in the way a bit!   Once she has quilted her quilt (she is going for diagonal cross hatching by machine) hopefully she will let me take a picture to share with you. 



  1. Being in print is very exciting! Well done you x

  2. Well done you! Can't wait to see where you appear next.

  3. What a buzz you must have got when you saw that. Congratulations. Its onwards and upwards now!

  4. Very exciting and I'm looking forward to hearing more about your other publishing 'irons' :)


Please do leave a comment - I would love to hear from you!
