My name is Liz Swinbank - Welcome to my web site

patchwork and quilter


I have always enjoyed being creative and love trying new crafts and techniques.  I particularly enjoy working with fabrics, textiles and threads. In 2007 I completed the City & Guilds Diploma in Patchwork and Quilting.  The course opened my eyes to a wealth of creative ideas and techniques.  My bank balance will never be the same again! Especially since taking early retirement from nursing to pursue my passion for creativity.

I met like minded people on the course and many of us became good friends and have since formed our own local group called Thread Vision.  We meet up monthly to share ideas and put the world to rights! 

I enjoy going to exhibitions and workshops and am continually left buzzing with new ideas.  I always have several projects on the go and love a challenge.

  Here is my Studio - my playroom - which I sometimes share with my Grandchildren who also love to be creative.
