Julie fell into quilting after breaking her leg and spending four months in plaster with lots of time on her hands. Her first foray was a quilt for her niece and since then she has gone on to specialise in crochet and hand embroidery along with textile art and of course all things quilty. She is also known for her media work; her voice often to be heard on the radio, and as a regular demonstrator on Create and Craft as well as an actress both in El Dorado and The Office. If that wasn’t enough she and her husband Andy are foster parents and own the business together.
Julie initially opened the shop with Sarah Payne in August 2011. Since then, Sarah has gone on to be a successful demonstrator on Create and Craft as well as being a regular teacher at Bee Crafty.
