My grandmother taught me embroidery, tatting, crocheting etc. when I was a child. My first introduction to quilting was 28 years ago, when I attended a night class for beginner quilters, because an embroidery course I was going to attend was cancelled.
Ten years ago I purchased a long-arm quilting machine and have been quilting for others (as well as myself) since then. My interest in dyeing fabric started with a class by Ann Johnston, and I started designing my own work after attending the 2002 master class with Nancy Crow.
The City and Guilds course enhanced my interest in both design and fabric creation.

I started quilting in 1987 and have had works accepted at several Symposia. My first quilting highlight was winning a 1st prize at Christchurch Symposium in 2003.
I have taught classes at several guilds in the North Island. My interest in art quilting started at the Nancy Crow master class in 2002.
I completed the City and Guild course in Machine Embroidery two years ago.
Sheryl has now retired from Fabric by Three.
I’m a late starter to quilting just starting on my first quilt 2 years ago – what an addiction. I have come from a background of home dressmaking, learning sew as a young girl and making my mothers and my own clothes in my first year at college. Later while raising the family I took in dressmaking as a home business. Now I have retired from 8 – 5 work, I am looking forward to even more quilting fun.
