About Me


My name is Helen Godden!

I am an Extreme Free-Motion-Machine-Quilter (EFMMQ).

I have been an artist all my life and came into quilting at age 38.

I am thrilled to have been awarded many times for my innovative quilts, both internationally and nationally and I am the Handi Quilter Ambassador for the Sweet Sixteen quilting machine, and now the Capri and Amara Stationary machine too. 

I am so lucky to travel and teach and share my love of quilting far and wide. My goal is to “Educate and Inspire” all quilters as they launch into the world of possibilities that is Art Quilting .

Explore this website to learn about me, and all of the following:

  • Wide range of Online classes in painting, quilting & couching
