Challenges & Exhibitions
I belong to a number of different textile groups, each with its own mix of artists, interests, challenges and exhibition opportunities.
Contemporary Quilt & Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles
Contemporary Quilt (CQ) is a specialist interest group of the Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles. Most years members are challenged to create a quilt to a given theme and size specification, selected quilts generally joining a touring exhibition.

Stitch in the Middle
Based in the Midlands, ‘Stitch in the Middle’ is a subgroup of Contemporary Quilt who meet regularly and exhibit collectively.
Ledbury Poetry Festival
Each year Weaver’s Gallery, Ledbury, hosts an invitational textile exhibition timed to co-incide with the town’s renowned Poetry Festival. I have contributed a piece most years since its inception.
We are a group of six artists, each with different textile interests, who meet regularly to exchange ideas and challenge our own working practices. We aim to work towards an exhibition approximately every two years.
Art Quilts Around the World
As a member of this online group I commit to making a themed A3 sized challenge quilt every two months. Click below to view my pieces or visit our blog to see the work of other members. Due to other commitments I have left this group for the time being.
