Hello, I am an overseas member having lived in Switzerland since 1981. I have always been interested in fabric and wielding a needle, without great success in my earlier years, probably more enthusiasm than skill. For the last few years I have belonged to a local Quilt Club, Patchwork du Leman, a very talented group of ladies, combining Swiss pride in detail and execution and artistic ability. This membership is pushing me to grow and improve, although it is not always easy. we have an exhibition every two years where each member has to exhibit a quilt and this is combined with an optional challenge. I love anything to do with patchwork and needlework of most kinds and find having this in my life is enriching and fulfilling.
