France

I have been living in the French Alps since 2001 and actively involved with Patchwork since 2003. I have always been attracted to fabric and arrived at Patchwork via dressmaking and soft furnishings, the latter I ran as a business for about 12 years. I am a trained teacher and have always fitted some teaching in with everything that I have done. I still teach, although not many hours a week now, and I do a small amount of translation. Last August I tore myself away from walking in the Alps (also a passion) to go to the FOQ for the first time, I was blown away and really motivated so I joined the Quilter’s Guild Contemporary Group. I have always tinkered on my own with the odd course with the local France patchwork group but I yearned for more, most of the people around here are traditional in their approach and I wanted to know more. Hence I started a City and Guilds diploma in October because I want to be more efficient in my approach to textile art, focus myself and hopefully to make my results more professional. I am really enjoying learning new techniques and dying my own fabrics, I have far too many ideas for the amount of time! From time to time I get itchy feet and head off trekking elsewhere in the world, Nepal is a favourite, I just love cutting myself off from the modern world for a couple of weeks, it is two years since I have been a way and the itch is beginning to niggle…
