Hi Quilters!

I'm delighted & privileged to be a member of the Material Mavens!

I've sewn & embroidered for almost as long as I can remember. I did City & Guilds of London Certificates in Creative Embroidery some years ago & I've been teaching leisure classes since then. My enthusiasm & excitement for quilting arrived gradually over the last few years as I visited various Quilt Shows, especially the Festival of Quilts at Birmingham in England which I believe is now the biggest show in Europe.

I think "Harmony" is a most appropriate first theme for us - I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and working with you in harmony for a long time!



  1. Welcome Jane. I enjoyed exploring what I could find on-line about the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham. Maybe we should all try to get there some day!

  2. So glad that you are now posting, Jane. It was fun to learn more about you and to hear about the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham. I, too, looked it up, and it reminds me of the Houston Quilt Festival here in the states. From Texas in the autumn it travels to the mid-west and then on to California.
    How fortunate we quilters are here and you are there to have such amazing quilt shows to energize us! Harmony is such an appropriate theme to begin this journey together!

  3. I am excited that you have joined our group, Jane! This group is going to be so much fun!
    I vote for meeting at the the Festival of Quilts!!! That may take me a bit of time to make it possible, but I can dream and dreams do come true.

  4. We're happy to have you Jane, and I second Judy's idea. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we all met at the Festival of Quilts at some point in the future?
