Our speaker for November is Linda Chevell with her talk "From Rag Dolls to Slipper Stiches"
Linda has been quilting since 1991, when she joined Market Bosworth Quilters to learn what to do with a panel of hand-sewn patchwork. She was very quickly addicted. She learned mostly through making specific patterns at workshops and retreats, but might have progressed quicker with a more structured course.
Her background is Art and Design but she taught English until she retired in 2007. Since she retired she has taught classes at Bramble Patch and Quilteez at Ratby. Her classes are designed to help beginners and more experienced quilters to gain skills in a structured way and she enjoys helping new quilters to 'get hooked' and watching their pride and confidence grow.
