Helen Howes

I have been sewing since I was two years old.. I get fidgetty when I'm not doing that. In the last 20 years I have been mainly an Art quilter, with a modern aesthetic and a tendency to make Trees.
I was a kite-maker for 40 years, and still do a little of this, as applique looks good in the sky. I teach, in real life and online, make videos and tutorials, write patterns, lecture, make websites, and sometimes sleep. I mend and restore old sewing machines, and am famous for demoing on them for the Modern Quilt Group
I founded and help to run the Teapot Quilters, which meet once a fortnight in South Norfolk, and I teach all over the UK and in Europe and on Zoom.
I founded and was the first co-ordinator of the Modern Quilt Group within the Guild, and am proud of doing great things with this
I'm currently working on a big series of quilts about Full Moons

I was most honoured to have one of my quilts (Green Copse) selected for the 2015 calendar and another "Modern Jazz" added the the Guild collection and featured on the 2021 Diary..
