Helen is a quilt designer, maker, teacher and blogger from the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia. She has been sewing since the first grade and a passionate quilter since the early 90's. Patchwork Bliss began in 2006 when her dream became a reality.
When it comes to creating new quilts, Helen always starts with the fabric. As soon as she finds a fabric that she loves she will gather other fabrics and they will dictate the design.
Helen's passion is to piece and quilt by hand as much as possible, and she loves to teach others how to quilt by hand as well. Helen had never considered teaching until a few people approached her and asked her to teach them the basics. She was then asked to teach at a local shop and the classes have grown from there. Now the students will travel far and wide to attend her classes. The classes cover all sewing techniques and there is something for everyone, from beginner to the more advanced quilt maker.
For Helen, quilt making is all about sharing and friendship. Sharing a passion with other people is a joy.
