Mimram Quilters will be holding their 12th exhibition in Welwyn Civic Centre, Prospect Place, Old Welwyn in Hertfordshire. 10-5 (Sat) and 10-4 (Sun). £3.50 entrance, children free. Lots of quilts, traders, sales, and raffles. Why not enter the open competition for an A4 Journal quilt with the title Celebration? Contact me for a form.

My poem quilts are now going to be exhibited in Sandown in June. Watch this space for that event.

 

Hello.

My name is Michèle and this website will take you to my patchwork and quilting workshops, quilts sales, a gallery of quilts and some links to useful organisations.

I have been quilting for 40 years and became a Founder Member of the Quilters Guild which was established in the late 1980s. This is a thriving society now with headquarters and a museum in York which holds three magnificent exhibitions a year. Sadly their HQ in York has closed and we await news of their relocation.

I belong to quite a few local groups too which meet monthly or weekly throughout the year. I also like to go away for a few days a couple of times a year to learn some new techniques.

My Tuesday group has been meeting for nearly 40 years – the Mardigras Girls. We have made several charity quilts. Our oldest member sadly died a few years ago at the ripe old age of 96, still driving (with an advanced driving test under her belt), still quilting, still dress-making, and still looking a million dollars. We are modelling ourselves on her!

We formed Mimram Quilters who meet monthly in Welwyn, Herts, on the first Monday evening of each month. Icknield Quilters meet in Baldock, Herts, every second Monday evening. Both these groups have speaker evenings and sewing evenings learning new techniques or completing challenges.

I have far too many UFO's in my workroom, but I aim to finish at least three of these every year – of course by that time I will have added quite a few more. I take commissions for quilts, bed runners or any quilty items, but have some for sale too. These will give you an idea of some patterns you might like for your home, but for a commission, the colour choice will be yours!

My workshops have grown over the last few years - click on the Workshop page to see what I do. My local area covers the East and West Anglia regions but I don’t mind travelling further.
