Quality Quilting & Quiltography

Welcome to Studio By The Lake!

I specialise in quiltography and textile art. I also run classes for beginners to advanced in patchwork, quilting and textile arts.

I have over thirty years of patchwork and quilting experience, and hold City and Guilds certificates in Design and also in Creative Machine Embroidery (free motion not computer) and have completed one year of a two year City and Guild Certificate in Patchwork and Quilting, all studied in England.

I am a certified Quilt in a Day Teacher and teach quick and easy methods to make traditional style quilts with minimal fabric wastage.


I am the only qualified AnglePlay teacher in Australia and specialise in using this method to inspire students to design their own unique and exciting quilts.

I travel annually to America to attend retreats. So with my experience and continuing learning I have a myriad of ideas, both traditional and modern.

Originally trained as a Primary teacher, I soon specialised in Art and Craft teaching and then in Adult Education. I am happy to adapt my teaching to all levels of experience and apart from workshops in Design, Quilting and Textile Art at various locations, I teach small groups in my lakefront studio at Gorokan on the Central Coast of New South Wales.
