Meet our February Join prize winner, Ann!
Fabric Freedom Noodle Roll
February Join Prize was won by Ann, from Nottinghamshire. Ann says, "I
am pleased to tell you that I have used the website many times since
joining and have enjoyed the ease in which I could search through the
pages. I am sure that, that as the weeks go by, I will be increasingly
searching through the pages for interest and help in my new
interest in sewing started as a child, when my mother, who
was competent at embroidery, gave me my first tapestry canvas
to work. Over many years I have experimented with all types
of sewing and crafts. On my retirement from the NHS, after 40
years, I joined a small patchwork group called Busy Fingers.
We meet in a village hall close to Newark, twice a month during the
winter and monthly during the summer."
have developed an interest in patchwork thanks to the support of the
other members who are all extremely kind and generous in their advice
and encouragement. After a shaky start, I am currently making
a sampler quilt. It is far from perfect, but has inspired me
to continue in pursuit of excellence! (wishful thinking). I cannot
explain the feeling of satisfaction as the blocks started to evolve
into a piece of original artwork!!"
is my hope that I will have many years in which to extend my newly
found skills and to make use of your interesting website."
won a great Noodle Roll from Fabric Freedom, featuring fabrics from
their Harvest time range. I'm sure Ann will enjoy using her noodles!

strips, why not have a go?
