Karen Berry Textiles

I'm an auditioned and approved speaker with the WI for Hampshire and West Sussex on the topic of the History of Patchwork and Quilting.

My presentation lasts approximately 45 minutes and features a collection of quilts up to 130 years old.

The presentation is portable and requires no projection equipment as in addition to the quilts on show, further illustration is made by booklets given out to the audience.

The fee for my presentation is £50 plus travelling expenses from Emsworth, Hants.

To arrange a presentation please contact me at:


"It was obvious that you had a really good knowledge and love of your subject and had prepared very well in advance. I'd just announced to my friend that I didn't really like patchwork and within 20 minutes you'd converted me!"   WI Speakers' Selection Day

"The books you provided must have taken hours to produce and were beautifully put together."  North Waltham WI

"A wonderful talk enjoyed by everybody." Liss in Stitches

"What a lovely afternoon you gave us, I had so many members saying how much they enjoyed it." Meon Valley Quilters

"People thanked me for arranging such an interesting speaker, which was quite unusual!" SL

"We booked a gem."  Haven WI
