Using her own hand dyed and treated fabrics (known as Mallee Textiles) Catherine makes original works often based on a theme or taking the inspiration from the fabric itself. She loves the combination of hand and machine stitch.
Catherine's background includes convening two Symposiums and being president of Aotearoa Quilters. She is also a member of the international group www.clothincommon.com where she works in a series based on prompts from the group.
Catherine have been creating for over 30 years and has taught locally as well as internationally. She likes her classes to be relaxed, fun filled and achievable by any level of experience.
