Brit Bee Retreat 2017

It has been my absolute joy and privilege to be part of an amazingly talented, caring and funny group of quilters called 'Brit Bee'.   We formed in 2011 from the 'Brit Quilt' Flickr Group, and despite 3 member changes, we haven't stopped sewing for each other since!   Our very first 'meet up' at […]

Beauty and The Beast!

A few weeks back I was offered an industrial Singer Sewing machine!   She was originally a factory girl, retired long ago! I call her 'The Beast'! She weighs an absolute tonne (it took 3 men to carry her upstairs!) and sounds like a jumbo jet taking off (I hope the neighbours don't mind)! But […]
