Born in Yorkshire, England Philippa discovered a love of sewing and knitting as a child. Originally trained to be a clothes designer, Philippa set up a business making bespoke wedding and evening dresses after moving to Saudi Arabia in 1989. It was in Saudi that she began to quilt. Philippa describes a workshop at Quilting-By-The-Lake, as a ‘Road to Damascus’ experience. From this moment on she has made only original quilts using her own hand-dyed fabrics. Philippa has won many top prizes in quilt shows in both the UK and America. She is the only non-American to have more than 1 quilt in the collection of National Quilt Museum in Paducah KY. Philippa published her first book Quilting in the Limelight in 2008. Now out of print. Her second book Appliqué Mastery was written and published in 2014.
