Green Man Quilts is the creative home of Sheena Roberts. That’s me! I have been sewing since I was tiny and creating patchwork quilts for almost as long.

It was my Great Aunt Mary (Mary the Great!) that started me off on the path to becoming a good stitcher. It had been strongly suggested at school that I didn’t continue with the sewing classes, after I cut my skirt along the fold line of the pattern, made a pigs ear of the french seams in the nightie and did who knows what damage to the domestic science apron (all we had to do was hem it and chain stitch our initials!). Those were the 3 projects for that year! Dismal! But I went home, told Auntie Mary about it and in a weekend she taught me more than I had learnt in the whole year. And inspired me to crate things of beauty! I entered – and got first prize in the dressmaking competition at school the next year!

Laura Ashley fed my passion for colour by selling me various bags of fabric – off-cuts, pre-cut hexagons – the lot, and with these I started my journey into quilt making.

I had someone who did not give up on me – and that has influenced me.

My passion is in sharing skills – through classes, small groups and individual tuition; and in making things that are to be used and that are made from materials that are to hand.

I would love to share that passion with you
