Just had a wonderful week providing craft classes on behalf of Country Living and running my stand at the Country Living Christmas Fair in . Although hard work we always enjoy ourselves and Harrogate is a lovely town and the people are so friendly. Thanks to the Country Living and Upper Street Events team for all their help and support.

I am excited to announce I will be starting a new fortnightly course in January 2019 at Create98, an Art and Creative Studio in Leigh-on-Sea. There is a sampler day on 12 December – see below (click on image to enlarge)
Just finished five days of presenting workshops at the Country Living Christmas Fair in London. A busy time but, as always, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting lots of new people.

It’s been a busy summer at Hilary Jane’s, planning workshops and classes for the forthcoming autumn term. I was very proud to see one of my quilts displayed at The Festival of Quilts and to receive lovely comments from the judging panel.
Christmas is round the corner and I am so excited I will be providing crafting workshops at the Country Living Christmas fairs at the Business Design Centre, London and the Convention Centre, Harrogate. I love being part of these crafting workshops and for me it is the start of the festive period. The title of this year’s project is ‘Making a Gingerbread House Decoration’. Enjoy the rest of the summer !
So many quilts to see, haven’t had time to go shopping yet!
