About May Gene
My quilting journey started in 2003 and when the ‘bug’ bit, it bit HARD!!! I was consumed by all these beautiful fabrics and would often take my stash out of their drawers just to sort and stroke them (much to my husband’s amusement), feeling a sense of peace come over me – quilters will know this feeling only too well.
I started my quilt teaching career in 2008 and completed the South African Quilters Guild Teachers’ Accreditation Course in 2014. I have a strong desire to share my quilting passion and as a traditional quilt teacher, I aim to give my students a solid grasp of the basic foundations of quilting. My goal for each student is that they are able to confidently apply what they have learnt and to feel empowered when they start a new project that may have previously seemed daunting.
I have been providing a professional machine quilting service to my students and customers since 2007. It gives me such great pleasure to see the satisfaction on the faces of my clients, and some joyful tears at times, when they see how their quilts have been further enhanced. If a quilt was made from the heart for someone they love, it is a masterpiece in it’s own right. The gift of time is truly precious…
