WATER­FORD woman Stephanie Knud­sen says she will never quit quilt­ing.

The lo­cal artist has made more than 40 quilts to date with some works ex­hib­ited na­tion­ally and over­seas, win­ning nu­mer­ous awards and fea­tur­ing in mag­a­zine and cal­en­dars.

Knud­sen is part of the con­tem­po­rary quilt­ing group, an or­gan­i­sa­tion she joined when she first came to Perth nine years ago.

“We dis­cuss and ex­plore many dif­fer­ent meth­ods of work­ing with tex­tiles, both con­tem­po­rary and in­no­va­tive, which is some­thing I have al­ways been pas­sion­ate about,” she said. The group’s lat­est works will be on dis­play as part of the Perth Craft and Quilt Fair at the Perth Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre from May 20 - 24.
