    Hello Roy,
    Fondest memories of your trips to Perth in the 90s. I still treasure the quilt you made me and had it framed to hang on a wall. Had a wonderful evening with the indomitable Diane Bouchier last night and we remember all those SAA fun lovers who would visit, including Enid Van Heerden, Lulu Lazarus, Nicky Dixon, Vika Fourie and Hannes du Plessis. Love to you from me.

    SUCH an inspiration, your exhibition at the Hilton festival. I've been in a fever of 'sewing' ever since. Many thanks,

    It was a delight to meet you at the Hilton Arts Festival and chat about your quilts. 'A true feast for the eyes'. The colours and patterns, shocking the senses, with vibrant life and wonder.

    I have long frowned upon quilts for ther lack of creativity; -Well, you've shown me! Truly inspiring work, I'll look at quilting with new eyes from now on. I'm really happy to have come across your website, and I hope that I get the opportunity to see one of your shows in the future.

    All those beautiful colours. I love your passion for the art of quilting and I agree with your staement that quilting 'rules' are there to be broken. I don't think there are enough adjectives to decribe how amazing your work is. Looking forward to the next creation.

    Roy, What an experiance to see some of your MASTERPIECES. Now we must see them "LIVE" and come and visit you. We are in Perth and were just talking about the days at the Transit Inn when we were here for 17 days and you "schlepped" the machine in your Delsey.
    We loved your website as well as the comments from people around the World.
    Well Done Maestro!
    All the BEST.
    Robbie and Luciano

    Great artistry, Roy! Love you work. Fully support and agree with your statement that you do not make quilts for the washing machine! Neither do I (but I am just a newby in this art) and still only doing the basics and off pattern. Love your Mandela quilt!

    Hello Roy! Can still see you sitting on "jump seats" and schlepping the sewing machine around on flights! What an absolute "Master" you have become of your trade .. and how your styles have changed over the years! Always knew you were destined for greater things! Fabulous, doll! SO proud of you! Your creativity knows no bounds!

    What I am seeing I can't believe! Amazing work - your use of colour and movement your quilts are alive. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work. In George we are trying to break from the traditional and have started a fibre arts group and your work is a true inspiration.

    Thank you very much for your wonderful Gallery and Stage Talk at Yokohama Quilt Week Show in Japan. Your exhibition was absolutely a great success and so many Japanese quilters were moved by your work. Please come back to Japan when you have another beautiful 20 quilts. We are all waiting for you!"

    Roy Starke - will I ever forget how you tried to teach me to quilt while being snowed in in Zurich. Will I ever forget the Delsey suitcase, the materials, the sewing machine the treads. Will I ever forget the enraptured Zurich quilting ladies when you spoke with fire and passion about quilting and thinking out of the box. Will I ever forget the special table being rolled into your room upon arrival at the hotel - specially for your quilts. If nothing remains with me of years gone by - your energy and passion for your art will always be there. What a friend, what an artist - exceptional and always mutating. What next may we ask? Only time Roy and his creative mind will show us. You make me proud. Well done - now take up that needle and quilt!!!

    I 1st saw your work at an exhibition held at the Grahamstown Festival and your marvelous ability to embrace a wildly colourfull palette and splash it about with seeming abandon grabbed me by the throat and shook me up and down. I landed joyfully on my feet only to start vibrating with energy again. Congratulations Roy, your vivacious celebration of colour is wonderfull.
