About Patchwork Dreamer




About Mary Norman

Hello and welcome, I am Mary the dreamer behind this web site.  I have been playing with fabric since about the age of five when my grandmother showed me how to sew paper pieced hexagons. Moved along to dressmaking in my teens.  Took a Diploma in industrial fashion and design and then more or less stopped as life took over.  I dabbled in the patchwork on and off for many years before deciding to take a beginners course a few years ago with the lovely Abbie Searle.  Abbie gave me the confidence to try out new things and I am now undertaking a City and Guilds level 3 in patchwork and quilting.  Patchwork and quilting has rather taken over my life and with the support of my long suffering husband and children I have given up my job as a childminder to set up Patchwork Dreamer. So join me on this fabric dream use the social media at the top of the page to tell me what you like and what you would like.
