Quilt at the Winter School

I have quite a few teaching dates organised for this year and most are for private groups and don't have any vacancies but the class in Ballarat still has some vacancies.

In July, I am teaching at Quilt in the Winter School in Ballarat, it is  5 days of classes as well as meals and accommodation at Ballarat Grammar, which is a beautiful school.

Canada from Naturally Crazy

Having a 5 day class is quite unusual for quilters but it is a much more common occurrence for textile artists. I think it is a wonderful opportunity because it is very hard to include much content in 2 day classes and virtually impossible in a one day class because hand work is so much slower than machine classes.

As well as learning all the basic crazy stitches we'll have a chance to learn the less common and more intricate stitches. I am looking forward to covering design and colour and hoping to encourage everyone to find their own artistic voice instead of having to follow patterns all the time. It will be a very exciting opportunity and I am looking forward to it.


Click on the link here to read a bit more about it. It will be a wonderful week for friends to get together but everyone will be included so don't be afraid to come on your own. Glenys Mann is organising the retreat and she is very accomplished at his sort of event.

Bye for now,

I love both of these images so much, that quilt is just stunning. Wish I could see it in person at your class!

Thank you Jen, it is always lovely to see work in person rather than photos which is why I have enjoyed being part of the Round Robin. I get to see other peoples work up close.
