Quilting Newsletter


June 7 2012 Quilting Newsletter

Hi everyone! Wow, What a week! I have been teaching in Cohuna, Victoria for a huge Quilting Retreat run by the quilters of this gorgeous little village, on the Murray River, which divides New South Wales and Victoria.

I taught two, one day workshops on needle turn appliqué and Celtic appliqué and I had a ball. My sister Jennifer was able to attend these workshops with me and it was a delight to have my sister in the class. The wonderful ladies who chose to do my classes were from a variety of lifestyles from Hairdressers & Farmers to business owners and great grandmothers.

I must say the country hospitality was outstanding and the food SCRUMPTUOUS!! Everything was baked from scratch and tasted yummy. We had a night’s entertainment on both nights and were very well taken care of at our accommodation.

I arrived back home late Monday afternoon, completely exhausted but elated. I can thoroughly recommend any quilters retreat for a fun time and a chance to gain a few pounds!!

Last Sunday I posted an article on Scissors. Here’s the link to that article for you:
