First Meeting for 2016 - Guest Quilter Miriam Jones

Our Guest for the August Meeting is  Miriam Jones from Fairholme Quilters …...

All my life I have loved colour and fabric. For 25 years I have been quilting. I started off teaching myself with a book about how to make a sampler quilt with really no idea what I was doing!    From there I have slowly built up my skills and now I am making my own patterns, teaching others and writing my blog It is the joy of sharing with others and making friendships that has really inspired me to do this. I make all kinds of projects, both big and small, and love the way there is always more to learn and try.   Alas, only one lifetime to do them all! 
I wear many hats. I am a Speech Pathologist and a Primary School Teacher too, I love books and have studied literature. I have lived in Japan for 7 years and England for 4 years.
All of these experiences have influenced and enhanced  my love and  appreciation of fabric,  colour and design. I am proud to be a  member of Fairholme Quilters. Their generosity, encouragement and  amazing charity work motivates  me daily.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Hope you can join us for the May Meeting …..
