Veronica’s journey in the fabric craft industry started in June 2006 when she was introduced toPatchwork by her sister-in-law. Three months later she purchased a Gammill long arm quilting machine and Appleyard Cottage was born. Her passion, attention to detail and wanting to get it just right has earned her many very satisfied customers, design and quilting awards over her 10 years plus of professional long arm quilting.

With a desire to help her customers further and expand, Appleyard Cottage went online early in 2014. Appleyard cottage supplies a large range of fabric, notions, designs and her own range of patterns, kits and collages.

Veronica has been marketing and promoting Fiberworks collage patterns since 2016 and now as an accredited Laura Heine Collage teacher Veronica enthusiastically passes on her knowledge and techniques during her classes and workshops.
