About Mary Norman

Hello and welcome, I am Mary the dreamer behind this website. I have been playing with fabric since about the age of five when my grandmother showed me how to sew paper pieced hexagons. I then moved along to dressmaking in my teens. Did a Diploma in industrial fashion and design and then more or less stopped as life took over. I dabbled in patchwork on and off for many years before deciding to take a beginners course. This gave me the confidence to try out new things. I have now completed a City and Guilds level 3 in patchwork and quilting.

Patchwork and quilting has rather taken over my life and with the support of my long suffering husband and children. In November 2019 I moved into a cabin in the woods and now I can talk and live patchwork everyday!
