Cathy Stoddart, (Chair) began quilting in the 1980s when her children were small in a Wandsworth Council Adult Education class taught by Mary Clare Clark. Life took over for two decades but her passion was re-ignited in 2015 by joining another class taught by Maggie Barber. Since then she has made dozens of quilts and attended many classes, both in-person and virtual.
Sabine Best, (Vice-Chair and Membership) is a relatively recent quilter with only a few quilts under her belt so far. She loves to upcycle and produces quilts using not only new but many inherited and pre-loved fabrics that she finds in charity shops and at car boot sales.
Viv Philpot, (Treasurer) started making patchwork quilts in the 1990s and her work is informed by traditional quiltmaking. Patchwork allows Viv to express her love of fabric and colour. She mainly makes scrap quilts using many different fabrics, the more the better.
Annie Folkard, (Webmaster), encouraged by a quilting friend, started quilting in 2018, but in another life, has a textiles background from years ago. She came back from a 3 week holiday in Australia, where she went to the Australia Quilting Convention in Melbourne, obsessed, with 3 quilts ready to be sandwiched and quilted. No stopping her! In 2023 she got a quilt accepted in the UK Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
