Nice things my clients are saying
I cried when one of my customers was so thrilled with the wedding quilt I made for her son and daughter-in-law that she wrote and dedicated a poem to me.
The Quilter (poem written by a customer)
(Inspired by and dedicated to Jennifer Campbell Kirk for the quilt made to celebrate the wedding on 23rd August 2015 of Julian Hindley and Michelle McNamara)
Stories stitched with every thread.
Heirlooms created in silk and cotton
of memories, events and words unsaid
Events now tangible, n’ere forgotten.
Love made eternal by her skill
as the quilter weaves her magic spell;
Cutting, stitching to fulfil
celebrations, that only time will tell
Their stories, of ordinary folk
with every cut and every stitch.
But by her skills this quilt, bespoke,
their stories forever will bewitch.
Oh, Quilter! Do you really realise
the magic weaved twixt your fingers and eyes?
