I get asked quite often where I’m teaching.  So here’s my teaching schedule for this year.  Of course I still have some gaps in my calendar that I’d love to fill with workshops.  So let your quilt shops and guilds know that I am available!!

So here are some calendar notes.

Saturday 27 June 2015:

First cab off the rank is a book signing at Patch n Quilt on Saturday 27 June 2015.  So come take a peak at my new book – Focus on Applique – and get your book signed.  Meet up with your quilting buddies and have lunch at the gorgeous café down the road from Patch n Quilt.

Details on my calendar and Patch n Quilt website.

Emma from Treehouse Textiles in Mornington  has also invited me to teach – so I’ll be doing two classes there one in September and the other in October.

Clamshells is a easy peasy fun class – really!  Its all in the prepping of the clamshells, but once that’s done it’s a joy to sew.
