Janice Gunner

I have been a member of the guild since 1982 and was President from 2005 to 2008. I have been quilting since 1974. My work now features contemporary and art quilt techniques such as indigo dyeing, shibori, vintage Japanese fabrics and free machine quilting. I am a teacher, author and quilt judge and I teach in the UK and overseas. I have been teaching City & Guilds Patchwork & Quilting since 1994. I run classes in East London, Launceston, Surrey and Missenden Abbey through my "Micro Centre". I am also a tutor at the world renowned West Dean College, near Chichester. I hold several awards, The Jewel Pearce Patterson Scholarship for International Quilt Teachers, The Amy Emms MBE award for services to quilt making and two Medals for Excellence from City & Guilds - 1993 as a learner for Patchwork & Quilting Part 1 and 2018 as a lecturer, nominated by Bucks Adult Learning & my students!

Through my interest in Japanese textiles I have become a tour leader on specialist Textile and Quilt holidays for Arena Travel, in particular to Japan. I have led two very successful trips there so far, you can read all about both of these trips on my blog. For more details please see my website
