I am a post graduate student studying for a Masters by Research in History at Oxford Brookes University.
My research project explores how quilt makers of the past used their making to create and preserve their personal and family memories, but also to establish their legacy for the future.
A paper from this wider research ‘Remember Me – Love, Loss and Legacy. British Memorial Quilts’, will be published in the academic journal Quilt Studies in 2021 and presented at the BQSG Conference in Oct 2021.
I am a member of the British Quilt Study Group and the American Quilt Study Group.
I sit on the Collections Committee of the Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles Museum Collection.
I contributed to the BBC Radio 4 program Moving Pictures episode exploring the Ann West Coverlet from the V&A.
