Author Helen StubbingsAbout the Author

Helen lives with her three daughters and husband in Tasmania, Australia's island - and southern-most state.

She runs her two business, Hugs 'n Kisses and Wysistas—maker of Quizzles®, interactive quilt patterns—from her home studio producing patterns, books and CDs for the textile, stitching, quilting, home decorating and craft industries. Her projects have appeared in many Australian and U.S. magazines and she has exhibited and been awarded many honors for her quilts worldwide.

Helen has taught her Colourque™ technique throughout Australia and internationally for several years and particularly loves the gathering/retreat type setting where women come together and share in the joy of stitching.

She also volunteers her time to several charity projects such as "Snugglybug Rugs" and runs charity friendship days in her local area.
