Article in the Canadian Quilter

There is an article in the Spring 2020 edition of the Canadian Quilter entitled Teaching Patchwork in the UK. Three Canadians, Rose Parr, myself and Bernadette Kent share our experiences of teaching at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham UK.

Treasured Memory

I just returned from the Grand National Fibre Art and Quilt Exhibition with the theme Still in Portage la Prairie Manitoba Canada where my piece Treasured Memory was displayed along with 46 other pieces in a wonderful show at Prairie Fusion arts and Entertainment . This piece was created from a photograph of my grandmother. I loved how the light was catching her. I used inktense pencils and commercial fabrics

UK Trip Fall 2018

I just returned from a lovely trip to the UK where I did some touring, spent some time with my daughter, Lisa, who lives in Portsmouth and also had the opportunity to meet a number of quilters and embroiderers. I delivered  slide/trunk presentations to the Portsmouth and District Embroiders Guild, the Southampton Quilters Guild and the Roundabout Quilters in Basinstoke. I also met with quilters from the Norfolk Quilters. I am happy to say that there was interest in having me teach on my next trip to the UK. My husband joined me for the last week of my 23 day visit and we enjoyed day trips by train from  a lovely inn in Thetford.

Trip to London, Jersey and Brugge Belgium

This week I returned from my trip to the UK where I met my daughter, Lisa, and we visited London, Jersey, and Brugge Belgium.  We had a nice trip and a good visit. The crowds of people made me appreciate my home with its rural setting and wide open spaces. Below are a photo of Big Ben in London, one of Lisa on a walking trail in Jersey and one of Brugge.  I have a week left to get ready for my teaching at Quilt Canada in Lethbridge Alberta and then hope to organize the opening of my new teaching studio and gallery.London webJersey webBrugge web
