Susan Briscoe will be giving us a talk entitled "From a British Tradition Textile and Folklore"
She is a designer and textile artist, author of several books and she teaches creative textile workshops. She also sells vintage Japanese fabrics.
Her new book 'The 1718 Coverlet: 69 Quilt Blocks from the Oldest Dated British Patchwork Coverlet" (published by D & C) was launched at Festival of Quilts. It is available from The Quilters' Guild of the British Isles in their online shop , where there's lots of lovely 1718 themed gifts and souvenirs too (Guild members get a 10% discount online as well as in the shop)... She has written this book to help raise funds for The Guild's charitable aims which includes the very important upkeep of the biggest collection of antique British patchworks, quilts and coverlets in the British Isles - you can browse the collection online and see just how amazing it is!
