About Maureen Dilley

Maureen has sewn since childhood and for the past three years, has taught patchwork techniques at a quilt shop, just over the border, in West Yorkshire. Maureen has made quilts, wall hangings, soft toys, curtains and clothes. Maureen also enjoys embroidery and has completed many hand stitched projects and made samplers, to order. She also repairs patchwork quilts and cleans and prepares antique samplers for framing. Students enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of her classes and find all the ‘extra’ useful tips an added bonus. "Well, I never knew that!" is often heard during her workshops.
