Having knitted, painted and stitched my way through early life, I studied for the City & Guilds Creative Embroidery Certificates and the Diploma in Stitched Textiles after my children started school. Since graduating in 1999 I have exhibited with textile groups and mixed craft guilds, written for stitch magazines, developed my career as a speaker and qualified as a quilt judge under the QGBI training scheme; I am also currently the Newsletter Editor for Region 15E.
Textiles come second to writing, though, and if you'd like to see exactly what it is that I write then please visit http://www.joanna-oneill.co.uk (note that hyphen), where you can see covers and read synopses (and even buy!).
Details of my talks and workshops are published on http://www.joannaoneilltextiles.co.uk and I am always happy to adapt and modify them to suit.
What a wonderful craft we share!
