Lorna Breckell

Hi, I am Lorna and I currently live in Clipstone, north Nottinghamshire. I class myself as Scottish as I grew up in highlands (Caithness).

I studied weaving / design at uni many, many moons ago but have never really done much with textiles until a couple of years ago. I started sewing as a hobby, when my Dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and starting getting fidgety fingers, I couldn’t find a fiddle blanket that was age and gender appropriate for him.

I started quilting approx Oct 2019 after being dragged to a local quilt show and I absolutely fell I love with a bee themed jellyroll that I had to purchase. I have been quilting else since and have developed a love of quilt but also just a slight addiction to purchasing fabrics!!!
