Taking a Sabbatical

For fifteen years I have been running my long arm quilting business Addicted To Quilts - meeting and working with many wonderful quilters.

After a great deal of thought I will be taking a sabbatical.  This is exciting and a little bit scary.  I plan to work on my own quilts and to spend time with my family - maybe even do more blog posts......... 

Of course I will be completing all exiting bookings which will take me into next year.  If you have a booking, please contact me in the usual way.

I plan to start up my business again in 2020.  I really love my work and can't imagine not coming back to it.  At the same time, I am looking forward to taking a break and having time for other things as well.

If you would like to be included on an email list for me to notify you when I open bookings again, please visit my web site - Addicted To Quilts for a link to my email address.

Thank you to my customers who I have been lucky to meet and quilt for, your support is greatly appreciated.

Oh, and here is the obligatory picture of a quilt :)


  1. I hope you will still be blogging about those projects of your own -- I will miss the inspiration otherwise! Glad you're taking the time you need to feed your own creative spirit. Good for you!

  2. I love watching your work. It's great that you describe it. I appreciate your work !

  3. Hi Desley, was sad to read that you wont' be quilting for a while we will miss your work it is like looking at beautiful pieces of art? I was thinking about you the last couple of days so looked you up as Esther was looking for some one to quilt her quilts for her and I thought of you straight away? It is 10 years since she started her group and i'm still on moderating her beautiful designs? I wish you lots of extra fun and laughter with your family and do hope to see you back behind your LA again? Cheers Glenda
