Story: 

"I am just an ordinary person, very little sewing skills, but enjoy needlework, I have done lots of cross stitch articles for family & friends. Patchwork cot covers for grandchildren (now great grandchildren). I am a member of a Fellowship group, also attend Weight Watchers - not really as I need to, but enjoy the company of others. Many of them are stitching people & we have displays.
I am just so glad I started Patchwork."
[Jean Winchester]
