Chris Swailes


Chris retired from a busy teaching career in July 2014.  Keen to have something new to replace the all-consuming lifestyle she was used to she bought a new sewing machine and soon after enrolled on a quilting course.  At the time she did not expect this new found hobby to take over as much of her time in quite the way it has!  Since then she has continued to practice and improve her skills and take on increasingly difficult challenges.  Her family and friends have been the main recipients of the many different projects she has completed – quilts, bags, baby play mats, wall art, and cushions.  Her family, friends and above all her husband, Paul have all encouraged her to exhibit her work and to make some of her creations available to others.
