Christine Brooks

I grew up on a small farm in England and now currently live in France. Having now retired from my official professional work (which was Nurse, Midwife, and Health Visitor, specializing in child development and family dynamics).

Now I am able to indulge in the many handicrafts that I have gathered from my family and friends over the years. Such as knitting, dressmaking, patchwork, embroidery, and lace making. I see my role now as helping the children to learn some of these crafts, so that these old traditional skills are not lost forever.

Favourite Famous quote: 
Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play.

~ Henri Matisse, French painter 1869-1954
