Hi - I am Debi, and I joined the Guild about 6 years ago, having got into patchwork and quilting at the grand old age of 60! I am now passionate about it and have a number of projects on the go which include a wall hanging and two cushion covers, a bird silhouette wall hanging and several ideas for smaller projects. Once they are in a photographable state I will upload pics of them. I have also made a cot quilt for our new baby granddaughter Astrid and this is based on a vintage hearts and floral design. I like to attend 1-day workshops, and have found these invaluable for learning new skills. I have also attended a workshop at Hampton Court Palace on embroidery and am very interested in embellishing quilts with hand and machine embroidery. I will update this page from time to time, with added pics, but any tips or help would be really appreciated.
To tell you a little about me - I am married, for the second time around, and we have 4 lovely kids between us aged 30 to 42, three boys and a girl, of which two boys are mine. One is married and the other lives with his partner and their two boys who are now 7 & 3 years old. I retired from full-time work in December 2015 and this year (2020) we moved to Cornwall for a change in lifestyle. Here I plan to take more time to sew and am setting up a new home and garden decor business called Fleur Home and hope this will take off in the next year or so. I am also keen to promote my own and others' hand made crafts and quilts on the site so would be happy to hear from anyone on that score. The website is http://www.fleurhome.co.uk and my email for that is .
