Laura has been sewing since she was a child and quilting for most of her adult life. Her work has been published in several quilting and craft magazines including Love Patchwork and Quilting, Mollie Makes and Simply Sewing. She is a technical pro and the Deputy Editor for Today’s Quilter magazine, where she has worked since the magazine launched in 2015. She loves teaching and often runs workshops at The Festival of Quilts (as well as holding unofficial quilting workshops for the Today’s Quilter team in the office,) and first launched her quilting career selling pet quilts on Etsy and notonthehighstreet.com, inspired by her own pampered cats. Away from the sewing machine, Laura is a book addict and interiors obsessor. She regularly posts photos on Instagram @laurapritchardquilts about her works-in-progress, finished quilts and her life in Bristol.
