Shirley Sparks

I have a passion for all types of crafts that use fabrics and threads but quilting is my favourite. I also love sharing my knowledge and have the teaching skills gained from 20 years as a Textile Teacher in secondary schools and 10 years tutoring dressmaking, knitting, crochet and quilting to local groups and shops. I have entered exhibitions and won awards with my quilts both nationally and internationally. I am currently on the committee for Aotearoa Quilters with the roles of Challenge Coordinator and Convenor of the Great NZ Quilt Show.
