Be inspired

I travel regularly around the UK and Europe speaking to patchwork, quilting and textile groups.

Often, groups choose to combine a talk and a workshop to make an interesting and stimulating two day event.

Talks include a digital presentation. I will provide a laptop and projector, but the group should provide a screen
