Janet Bolton lives in London and has written two books for children, My Grandmother's Patchwork Quilt and Noah's Ark. Since 1985 Janet's compositions have been featured in exhibitions world, - wide The Works Gallery in Philadelphia, Gayle Wilson Galleries, in the Hamptons, New York; Takashimaya, Tokyo and many others. Janet is also a lecturer and holds regular open workshops in the UK and is often invited to other countriesFrom Booklist:
For Bolton, scraps of fabric are imbued with memories capable of inspiring creativity and provoking imaginative musings. The images she creates with patchwork have a charm far greater than the basic craft techniques utilized, and although art school trained, Bolton retains a simplicity associated with self-taught artists. Many of the pieces shown here have the appeal and freshness of true folk art, so even though Bolton discusses elements of design throughout the text, a beginner need not be intimidated. All in all, this is a delightful primer that should interest a range of crafters coming from either a needlework or a painting orientation. Colorful illustrations complement Bolton's instructions on both stitchery and arranging motifs in attractive compositions. Alice Joyce
