Unfortunately the UK has gone on lock-down and life as we knew it has changed beyond recognition. I expect all of the fairs I have booked for Spring/Summer will postpone or cancel altogether as there is no clear indication as to when this terrible situation will end.
I am still doing bespoke work and keep busy trying new ideas to pass the time while self-isolating with my husband (fortunately we get on ..). Thankfully we are both healthy and hope to stat this way for as long as it takes. All I can say is be safe.
Pre Covid 19 blurb
Quilting has been my passion for many years and what started as a hobby has now become a full time obsession and led to the creation of Sunpatch Quilts.
For me quilting is not just about working with traditional patterns, it’s about trying out new ideas which I come across on the Internet or design myself to complete a bespoke order. The best part of quilting is the planning stage where I lose myself into colours and patterns and, as many clients testify, I seem to have the knack of combining colours to suit specific tastes.
In most cases my stock consists of items I create to satisfy personal needs such as wall-hanging Bargellos (I have four so far in my house), patchwork kimono jackets ( a quilted one for winter and a patchwork one for summer) , pocket bags to use for shopping or oven gloves for the kitchen, so when people ask me “where did you get that?” I am confident there is sufficient demand to sell these at craft fairs all over London or online.
