Jacquie Harvey

From the United Kingdom. 

Jacquie Harvey, who lives in North Norfolk, United Kingdom, is passionate about embroidery and quilting on historical costumes and textiles. This is not surprising since the earliest known European embroidery comes from England - a chausble, which is a religious outer garment similar to a poncho. 

Harvey uses her passion and subsequent research to create wall hangings, quilts, and clothing. Her version of a number of 17th - and 18th-century pieces were on display at the museum.

The quilter has won many national and international awards, including 2014 Quilts UK, 1st Place, Cot Quilt Category; and 2013 National Quilt Championships, 1st Place, Wearable Art. 

Harvey has been sewing since the age of four. Her formal training consists of City and Guilds Patchwork and Quilting Part 1 obtained in 1996. Over the years, Harvey has written articles and designed projects for UK and Australian quilting and embroidery magazines.
