Embroiderer and quilter, designer of exquisite textile projects, Cécile will be our special guest at the Brisbane Craft & Quilt Fair.

Cécile is known for her exquisite combinations of treasured fabric pieces, slivers of silks, linens and prints, snippets of ribbon and exotic threads, layered with a confection of stitches and beads. Details such as crocheted edgings and beaded tassels provide perfect finishing touches to her accessories, bags and quilts.

The overall results demand closer inspection – the unexpected combinations are an absolute delight to anyone with a love of textiles and are sure to inspire you to think differently.

Meet Cécile and enjoy an exhibition of her work – hand embroidered bags, needlebooks, many small items as well as some wonderful quilts. SOLD OUT!
