March Speaker

The talk by Maryke Phillips is My Stitching Obsession

Maryke lives in Mid Wales and works from her studio at home. She has been interested in textiles for many years and made my first quilt in 1984 using Laura Ashley fabrics. In 1996 she completed a two year City & Guilds course at Westhope College.  She carried on studying part two with Marie Roper. She makes textile hangings using machine and hand stitching. She loves colour and this is very important to her in the development of my work. She has exhibited my work at major shows and has had two exhibitions Sew Inspired and Sewing Solo. Five years ago Batiks n Beads was born and she sells on -line, at exhibitions and visit quilt groups with lovely batik fabrics from Bali and beads from Japan, she also sells Stef Francis threads and hand dyed felts and scrim.
