    Miriam Edwards comes from a long line of dressmakers and tailors. Her mother taught her to make clothes for her dolls and then for herself, and alter she did the same for her own children. Miriam discovered patchwork when she went to the National Parchwork Championships with friends in 1992. She was enthralled by what she saw and came home weighed down with fabrics. She soon started attending classes and made her first quilt in 1993. In 2001 she became a Young Quilter's Representative, and she now holds regular children's workshops. Her patterns have been published in Patchwork and Quilting and Fabrications magazines.

    Claire Buckley has been a teacher and textile designer for 20 years, teaching in secondary schools as well as exhibiting her work in galleries. She is the Chairman of the Young Embroiderers Guild. Her designs use embroidery for fashion and accessories and she often uses recycled materials. Her projects for children have been featured in magazines as well as on the internet.

    Nancy Nicholson grew up in a creative environment as her parents were both textile designers. She attended Maidstone College of Art where she did a BA in Graphic Design, and then went on to The Royal College of Art where she did an MA in Fine Art Textiles. Since leaving college Nancy has been working to exhibition with works in paper, print and embroidery, and experimenting widely in many aspects of textiles and design, both commercial and fine art based, including contributing to craft books and magazine articles. For the past ten years she has taught art and craft to children and adults. Nancy lives in Kent.
