All about Hillside Quilting and Anita Ellis



I am Anita Ellis, your longarm quilting and domestic machine quilting teacher. I love all things quilting, creating my own work, and teaching others how to quilt their own quilts on domestic sewing machines, long arm and mid arm machines.

My classes specialise in free motion quilting and working with the Westalee ruler foot and templates. I am an Accredited Westalee Design Educator and so am able to supply these to you with advise on which ones would be good for you as well as instruct you in their use.

Classes can be booked online now at

Come along to the unique teaching environment of my new Warrandyte quilting school.

I have taught many different classes in Melbourne and across Australia, including the Australian Machine Quilting Festival. I love to share my extensive knowledge of the quilting process with my students and have them leave the studio with the confidence to quilt their own quilts.
Why not book a class today so that you too can improve your quilting skills. A great place to start is the quilting with rulers…beginnings class. You can also book a one on one session on my A1 long arm quilting machine. Great for if you are a beginner or more advanced quilter looking for inspiration.

Happy quilting
