Welcome to Coffee with a Coastie. I sat down with Elizabeth Long, who at 82 is still creating textile art. Recently Elizabeth has been making beautiful items from her left-over fabrics. Making everything from masks, to quilts and tea cosies. Over the years Elizabeth has won prizes in The Quilter’s Guild of NSW for her textile art pieces, though now Elizabeth simply wants to inspire others to pick up whatever it is that interests them later in life and start doing it. So it was with great pleasure that I got to sit down and chat with Elizabeth to share her story.
