About me

Hi, I'm Jill Chapman. I'm a quasi-engineer and quilter from the North East of England. I have completed 2 years of an Engineering degree but have recently had to put my education on hold due to ill health.

I was introduced to quilting by my mother and a little hobby has turned into a full blown obsession. After a fruitless job search and many rejections saying that I was both over-qualified and under-qualified at the same time, I have been offered a job at my local quilt shop, running a Gammill long-arm quilting machine. 

I love gifting quilts to friends and family around me and the few that I have sold have gone to loving homes around the world. I hope you enjoy following my progress as I learn more about the history of quilting in the North of England and pick up skills and techniques along the way.

If you'd like to contact me for further information about any of my projects you can email me at northstarquilting@gmail.com
