Joy Salvage Talks & Workshops


I am available to give talks and workshops to groups and guilds. I live in South Gloucestershire, but am willing to travel anywhere! Below is some more detailed information. Get in contact with me via the contact page to book/enquire and find out about prices.

Talk title: ‘An Obsession with Log Cabin’

Talks usually last around 1.5 hours but can be lengthened or shortened to fit your needs.

My talks are a visual tour through my work, including kniting, embroidery and patchwork through real life quilts and samples focusing on my Log Cabin series. No slides/projector are used.

I encourage questions and handling of samples and quilts and am more than happy for people to feel the work and take photos.

Create your very own mini quilt using a quick strip piecing method. These can be adapted into needle cases, bags and lots of other fun projects.

Thank you so much for being our speaker yesterday evening. Many members have already said how much they enjoyed hearing about your obsession with log cabin. It was lovely we could see and touch your stunning quilts.

I must thank you on behalf of the ladies at Quirky’s for such an  excellent presentation.  You were very inspirational and they loved you enthusiasm.


Well what an afternoon, your talk, your quilts, you, just amazing! Everybody loved it and I had more than one comment of “best ever’.

Thank you so much for the talk and workshop you delivered for Exeter Quilters last week.  Both were very enjoyable, and I learnt a lot, not least about using my rotary cutter and ruler!

Thank You! Thank You! For giving Trinity Quilters a  fantastic evening with your Lecture, An Obsession with Log Cabins. Our ‘Ladies’ were truly amazed. I think they thought the evening would be yet another ‘Quilting Worthy’ who they’d seen five years before, and they got YOU! Joy by name and JOY by nature! I can tell you, the place was ‘buzzing’. Even our ‘Doyennes’ of the Group were so impressed.
