“I live in Melbourne, Australia. I have been quilting for the last 30 years and enjoyed and learned all techniques, from Machine Piecing, English Paper Piecing, Foundation Piecing and Needleturn Appliqué. I started designing my own applique quilts in 2007 and was asked to teach my first quilt. I haven’t looked back since then.
I enjoy teaching all aspects of needleturn applique and instilling in quilters the love for needleturn applique. I try and run my classes as sit and sew sessions where we have a fun and relaxing day, chatting to friends as well as learning new techniques or perfecting on learned techniques. I am now expanding into prepared edge applique as well as my version of “template” applique. I teach all the shortcuts that I’ve learnt over the years.
Lecture: My journey in quilting – including choosing fabric for quilts, prepping your complete quilt before sewing – and I share a Powerpoint of my quilts. Includes Q & A.”
