Nancy is passionate about English Paper Piecing and creates stunning quilts.
This is what Nancy says about herself:
Lina Patchwork Ltd. was founded in August 2013 by Nancy Adamek and is based at the Kent Enterprise Hub at the University of Kent in Canterbury (UK).
‘I have been a keen Quilter for the last 20 years and had my passion for quilting passed on to me by my mother Lillian Adamek. Lillian was a completely self-taught Quilter who founded the first local quilt group in Hamm (Germany) when I was a teenager in the 80’s. She went on to teach quilt classes at the adult education centre and organised annual quilt shows for many years. She actually got me into quilting by refusing to make me a quilt! And although I was very cross with her initially, I am eternally grateful to her stubbornness today. Once I started sewing my first quilt I never looked back: What a wonderful hobby!
Mum and I always dreamed of having our own quilting business together. Sadly she passed away in 2006. But her legacy lives on: ‘Lillian & Nancy’ – Li-Na = Lina Patchwork.
Did I mention that she was pretty obsessed with English Paper Piecing?’
