Finally the Quilting on the Downs flyer is ready to be sent out. Majella has presented an absolutely wonderful flyer that will have you wanting to book into every class this year. The quality of guest tutors visiting are presenting a stunning array of quilts that will have you discovering, learning and challenging yourself on your quilting journey. Please email the shop so that we can send (via post) a copy of the program to you. At the moment I am unable to download it or email it to you because of the format it is presented in – very old-fashioned, I know, but a yummy feast for the eyes in colour and perfect to sit and read with a cuppa – especially on these cold mornings.
As you will see we have some of our favourite tutors visiting us again this year – Kathy Doughty, Marg Sampson, Wendy Williams just to name a few and we are so pleased to be welcoming two new tutors this year – Brigitte Giblin and Sheena Chapman. Majella and I spent a weekend with Brigitte just recently and had the most fabulous time – our creative juices are flowing and we are still on a buzz with our fingers and stitching souls wanting to do nothing more than stitch and create delicious quilts. The previous post is all about our weekend away – have a look if you haven’t already read about our adventure.
Sheena Chapman has been teaching patchwork for over 20 years and specializes in combining traditional blocks with contemporary fabrics to produce individual quilts. If you are looking to move forward and outside of your comfort zone then come and join Sheena in No Strings Attached as she takes you on a journey of building a quilt without a pattern - pictured above is Paper Moon and the quilt below is her latest creation (sorry I don't have a name for you). This will be a class filled with fun, colour and creativity - not to be missed.
I hope you can find somewhere warm and sunny to do some stitching and feed your sewing soul.
