I was born in Bristol. My parents moved to South Africa when I was six. I finished school and studied Medical Technology and specialised in Haematology. I was married in1983 and had a daughter and a son. In 1995 my husband joined Emirate Airlines in Dubai and we relocated as a family. It was here my quilting journey began. I have loved every minute of it so far. From doing beginners sampler quilts, attending quilt retreats, organising quilt retreats, running a quilt store, taking up the role of chairlady of a couple of guilds to just keeping myself busy and sane while my husband flew around the world. After 40 years of flying he has retired and we have relocated to the south of England and I am once again meeting like minded ladies and still quilting!
