I AM 68 YEARS OF AGE AND RETIRED TO lNCOLN 4 YEARS AGO. i HAVE LIVED AND WORKED IN THE FAR AND MIDDLE EAST FOR THE LAST 17 YEARS. I learnt to make patchwork in Borneo and have taught in Borneo and Oman where I lived.
I have missed the groups of friends and the stitch and bitch weekly gatherings. It can be quite lonely without the network you were used to.
I love my patchwork and quilting and have managed to get to the festival of quilts each year.
