About Me


I love teaching's my passion!

I love to share my knowledge and expertise through my programme of workshops & courses, all of which are suitable for beginners or improvers.

The best part for me is to see people enjoying a new subject, growing in confidence and coming back for more!

Also to see others develop their existing skills to a new creative level where design, colour and technical ability are stretched.

Come along and meet me at my studio in East Keswick, between Leeds & Wetherby. Enjoy a browse round my lovely studio to see a wide variety of work on display and perhaps drool at the fantastic range of patchwork fabrics on sale in the shop

.......either way, you will be made very welcome
