Lesley has been quilting since the early 80s. While embracing traditional patterns, her work has evolved over the years to include modern methods of quilting. A member of Ocean Waves Quilt Society and Tea Thyme Quilters, Lesley has participated in several exhibits, shows, and sales. Her Dresden Plate quilt was an award winner in the “Quilts of the Island” travelling in 1994. This quilt also travelled to the Mary E. Black Gallery in Halifax. In 2004, she participated in the Inverness County Centre for the Arts Textile Festival. A resident of Port Hawkesbury, Lesley’s work is featured in the Artisans Collective shop at the Port Hastings Museum.
