IMPORTANT WEBSITE NEWS - As my current hosting company's online shopping cart options seem way too complicated to work out (and they also don't seem to have a suitable package for selling fabric yardage), I will be moving this site to a new hosting company soon. There may be temporary glitches and it will probably look different when you come back!
I am a designer and textile artist, author of several books and I teach creative textile workshops. I also sell vintage Japanese fabrics - there will be some fabric sales pages added to the website this autumn.
If you have any questions about my work, books or workshops, please get in touch.
My 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)... I've 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 - your can browse the collection online and see just how amazing it is! Also available from other bookshops.

Recent e mail problems are continuing - in January 2014 all the saved e mails from 19th December onwards had been deleted from my Orange/Freeserve e mail page. The same thing has just happened on 6th July 2014 and all e mails since 27th May 2014 have gone. No idea why this happened - twice! So if you have mailed me and I haven't replied yet, I may not have a copy of your e mail any more - can you resend it please? This only affects e mails sent to my old briscoedesigns.freeserve.co.uk address, not the new e mail address on my contact page. Please use the new address from now on.
