More about Helen Deighan:
As a professional textile artist, Helen has been making quilts since 1984.
Initially working from existing patterns, she soon started developing her designs. And, when she couldn’t find the right color shade to fit, she dyed her own. She has created many exciting dyeing effects using everyday household objects – from cat litter trays and drains pipes to her now-famous plastic freezer bags!
She has a great passion for designing and making textile coil pots.
