My name is Julie, and I have been quilting since 1986. In the early years of my quilting journey, I made handmade quilts for myself and my family and friends.
I have lived in many countries over the past 40 years and took the opportunity to join local quilt groups. I also participated in many quilt workshops and classes wherever I lived. These wonderful opportunities sharpened my skills and allowed me to pick up helpful tips and learn different quilting styles.
Many years into my quilting journey, I became involved in a fund-raising project for charity whilst living in the UK. Of course, I turned to my quilting skills for this project! I soon realised that I thoroughly enjoyed being in constant “quilting mode”. So when the project finished in 2016, I decided to turn my efforts towards launching a small quilting business.
What Happened Next
In the beginning, I sold my products at local craft fairs. In addition, I began holding two craft fairs per year at my home to raise money for charity. Many other crafters were invited to participate. We always had such a great time for a good cause. I also set up my own website for online business and called it A Quilting Bee.
After my husband retired, we moved to County Galway, Ireland. I joined the Western Branch of the Irish Patchwork Society and even served as the Branch Secretary.
I needed a name change for my business to go with its new location. A Quilting Bee became Red Bridge Quilts.
I sincerely hope you find something you like in my shop, whether it be for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
You can be assured that I am always available to answer any questions you may have about my items. Please don’t hesitate to contact me.
