That’s another easy one. My parents have always supported me - emotionally, physically, financially - all through my life and still do. I wouldn’t be doing what I do now without them but I know how lucky I am. I wrote before about how my dad taught me so much about making things growing up but it was my mum who helped me emotionally through bad times, good times and everything in between. I can never thank them enough for being there for me. Though my dad is gone I still hear him giving me advice.
My mum is well into her retirement now and has had an obsession with quilting. She’s currently doing a City and Guilds course in textiles, just for hell of it. Never stop learning! There’s quite a cross over with textile props and we constantly talk about methods and materials so Mum has now taken over the mantle of being making advice provider; though we share a lot of knowledge now too. I really don’t know where I’d be without her.
