I am back to Melbourne now. Enjoying catching up with my family and friends. Yesterday we had a lovely North of the Yarra Quilting Guild sharing trading tables and travel stories.
This week I will put together some photos of my Ricky Tims teaching day experience. Awesome guy very inspirational.
I WILL get better at this blogging lark. I have so much to tell you about the last month. The people I have met and had the privilege to set on their machine quilting journey be that on domestic or long arm machines…the quilts I have seen…the quilts that I have designed in my head after my trip to the Red Centre of Australia…the list is endless.
Watch this space!
I am here in Adelaide on the eve of AMQF.
So excited to have my Ricky Timms lecture tomorrow and starting my teaching the day after.
As you know I am teaching several classes at the Australian Machine Quilting Festival this year and seen as I am talking about domestic machine classes I didn’t want you to feel out. So here is a little sneek peak of what we will be doing in the feather class.
Well the time for booking classes is drawing near, three weeks in fact. Head over to the AMQF website for more details of mine and other tutors classes.
As I have said before my classes are aimed at getting beginners up and going. I know when I first started quilting I was bombarded with so much information that I couldn’t use at the time. Now it is awesome to have that but at the beginning we all need facts in bite sized pieces that we can go home and put into practise. The classes I have designed will meet that need and really get you going on the path to being a confident quilter.
Looking forward to catching up later in the year at the Australian Machine Quilting Festival. Don’t forget it is for all quilters, domestic, short and long armed types, beginner to advanced. There will be something for everyone.
It is that time again for the Australian Machine Quilting Festival. 2012 will prove to be bigger and better than the last providing great learning opportunities for both domestic quilters and those with arms of varying lengths, be they short, mid or extra long.
How honoured was I to be asked to teach at this years event. Check out the classes at the website
There will be a great number of different classes for all ability levels. I am aiming my classes at those starting there quilting journey and will be teaching heaps of different things that can be used now…well you might have to wait until you get home, those machines are a little big for the cargo hold and I wouldn’t want to be paying the excess baggage bill.
So check it out and look forward to seeing you at the festival. I will keep you posted along the way.
