Principal Publications, Exhibitions and Awards

Maggie is Co-ordinator of the Mothers of Africa Sponsored Quilt Project raising money for women in sub-Saharan Africa who have very poor access to healthcare during pregnancy. The project involves creating individual fabric squares which are then sewn together to make beautiful quilts. These are exhibited in this country before being sent out to Zambia to be distributed in the communities where Mothers of Africa work. The project is open to all, irrespective of age, ability or location, and welcomes both individual and group participants (eg schools, colleges, craft and textile groups).
