To you, from Africa, by way of England

Kaye England has brought us African Inspirations Aurifil Threads collection  …” To you, from Africa, by way of England”  These lush rich colors will be the inspiration to create even more beautiful quilting.

Kaye began quilt making and fabric collecting in earnest in the early 1980’s, but was influenced early on by a family of needle workers. She now designs fabrics for Wilmington Prints and heads her own publishing company, Kaye England Publications. Kaye travels the world conducting sell-out lectures and workshops showcasing her wonderful fabrics, patterns and quilts, as well as her unique and honest outlook on life.  Despite a hectic teaching schedule, Kaye always finds time to quilt. She has written over 13 books.  Kaye was born and raised on a farm in Glasgow, Kentucky. She now resides in Indianapolis, Indiana. She has two children and six grandchildren.
