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. I then moved along to dressmaking in my teens.  Did a Diploma in industrial fashion and design and then more or less stopped as life took over.  I dabbled in patchwork on and off for many years before deciding to take a beginners course.  This gave me the confidence to try out new things.  I have now completed 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 hope to grow into a real shop in the not to distant furture.
