I live in deepest rural Devon in an old farmhouse near the sea with my naughty newfie, Ben. Townie husband is here at the weekend to help walk him! In the week I spend most of my time designing and making textile items. I haunt our local charity/thrift shops to find vintage textiles to recycle for my items and love to use patchwork, applique and embroidery techniques. (Sometimes all at once!)I started Bustle & Sew in 2009, and since then have created a collection of original embroidery, applique and patchwork patterns which I offer for sale through Etsy, and also on the Bustle & Sew website. I keep in touch with all my lovely customers customers through the Bustle & Sew blog, and also through my free monthly newsletter and the Bustle & Sew magazine.
I am still relatively new to quilting so still have lots to learn along the way! I look forward to chatting to other quilters.
