Getting to know me…
I am a published writer/editor with an MBA from the University of Aberdeen. I have forty years’ experience writing in a variety of media including monthly magazines, marketing material, funding proposals and safety standards for the offshore oil and gas industry. In addition, I have managed small teams and have delivered report writing workshops.
In May 2000, my book Rosemead; History of a School was published. I edited and wrote sections of the history of Rosemead School in Littlehampton, West Sussex; contacting graduates for photos and personal reminiscences.
At the same time, I have also nurtured my creative side starting out with making clothes for myself and then my children. Over thirty years ago I have taken introductory classes in quilting and have since made over fifty full-size quilts and numerous smaller projects. Recently, I have specialised in hand applique and have twice taken classes at the Academy of Applique held in Colonial Williamsburg in the USA.
In 2016, I began the Royal School of Needlework Certificate in Hand Embroidery; graduating with Merit in July 2019. I am continuing with the RSN Diploma programme and have completed four out of the six units so far. In 2018, I combined my talents and wrote two articles for the Canadian Quilter Magazine; one about an historic quilt that I reconstructed.
In October 2019 I attended the inaugural Threads of Success conference held in conjunction with the Houston Quilt Market and Festival. The Threads of Success event was being held for the first time to provide, according to their website, “a unique stand-alone conference and educational experience for those new to the quilting and sewing industry—or hoping to get a foot in the door”.
