I learnt to quilt whilst living in North Carolina USA in the early 2000 where I was mentored by the incredible Shelly May of the "Raspberry Rabbits". I have now been teaching and making quilts for over 18 years.
I enjoy traditional quilting techniques and have won several quilt show awards both in the UK and USA.
During the course of my career I have taught for museums and department stores and have had several patterns published.
I specialise in felted wool appliqué on a sewing machine using speciality threads and was invited to the Houston International Quilt Festival last year (2017) to demonstrate my technique. I also work with Just Hands on TV. I love to make Civil War and 30's reproduction quilts and also enjoy small piecing.
I have a first class honours degree in Education Studies and tutor workshops/courses, primarily in the Bristol area and also in Oxford where I tutor residential courses for the WI at Denman College. I also teach one to one students in my home studio and via Skype.
You can find me on Facebook as Sallieann Harrison - Quilter.
