ABOUT ROSE SMITH AND HER QUILTING
This is me, Rose Smith. Thank you for visiting the Ludlow Quilt and Sew website. I hope that this this will be where you open the door to mastering a whole new craft. You’ll see from my testimonials page that I’ve helped people from all over the world learn how to quilt and sew, and I’m also here to help you.
I live in Ludlow, home of good food and the laid back way of life. Ludlow is regarded by many as one of the best towns in England in which to live because of its traditional food markets, wonderful food producers, Michelin starred restaurants and, not least, its historic setting and breath taking countryside. It was the first town in England to obtain Slow City status which describes us Ludlow dwellers pretty well! Most of all, for me, it’s an endless source of inspiration.
I began a love for sewing over forty years ago, making clothes for myself and the children, gifts, bags, curtains, cushions – anything for the home. Then I discovered quilting. Now I incorporate quilting techniques into many of my sewing projects, and that has opened up a whole new world for me.
Since my three children all left home I’ve been free to indulge my passion for sewing and quilting with wild abandon. The children’s bedrooms have slowly disappeared beneath piles of fabric, quilts and UFO’s (unfinished objects). I’m having so much fun!
It is this love of quilting and sewing that I wish to share with you. You don’t have to become as obsessed as I am, but I do warn you, it’s so enjoyable and rewarding that it’s difficult not to get hooked.
Do browse the website. I promise you’ll find plent of quilting ideas, from making everyday items to crafting something really special.
