Annette Morgan: Textile Artist, Teacher, Author and Quilt Judge Annette is inspired by the world around her, at present the environs of the Brecklands - an area in Norfolk and Suffolk characterised by dry sandy soils, meres, flint and woodlands. She likes to experiment with colouring her own fabrics, using paint, dye and screen printing, developing her own palette as she goes. Annette often works in an abstract way, but also uses photographs which are transferred onto fabric. An award winning textile artist Annette has recently retired from teaching to concentrate on her own work. She has always loved hand- stitching so has added pieces to her portfolio which explore the use of found textile items.
She has written three books and is an ex-President of the Quilters' Guild of the British Isles and whilst she was President she instigated the Festival of Quilts which is held in Birmingham each summer.
