"WOW... what an amazing video... I'm so glad I found it and watched it! It's incredible to realize how much goes into making fabric and the screen printing process is amazing! Robert Kaufman fabrics have been among my favorites for years!…"

I am a quilter, sewer, artist! I live in a restored Victorian mansion that is famous in my area for being haunted and always in need of "something"! I am also a graphic artist, I crochet, mosaics and love stained glass and am always experimenting with new and old techniques... I am a perfectionist who is trying so hard to not be such of one as I have trouble finishing projects, thus why I am here! I need to learn that not everything will be perfect all the time!

Thank you very much for adding me to your friends list. I absolutely love your work. Its truly beautiful. You obviously have been quilting for a while. Do you get your ideas from a book(s) or do you create them yourself. I would love to do similar designs. I have only been quilting for just on 2 years now. So I still call myself a beginner. I am inspired by your work and are planning to do something like your sunflowers but in irises instead. Do you have any suggestions or guidance on where I should start?
I suppose I should introduce myself. My name is Julie Beard. I reside in Adelaide South Australia. I am 52 years of age. I was a Registered Nurse, unfortunately I had to retire due to medical issues. So now, I live alone and spend the majority of time doing quilting and various other crafts. I don't have any other family, I do have a wonderful neighbour who tolerates me and who has become a good friend. I hope we can become good email pals. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. Julie Beard.
