As you can imagine, I meet a lot of quilters. I often get asked which quilter I haven't met, who I would most like to meet and take a class with? Easy, the same ever since I first started quilting, top of my list. That would be these two.
Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston.
I tend to not really geek out over meeting people but when Erica told me Gwen was coming to New Zealand for Symposium my first thought was my airfares, and my second thought was - I'll bring the mountain to Mohammed!
And so without further ado, the frantically thrilling news that Gwen will be here in Australia teaching in July! You can find her at
and she's giving a lecture in North Sydney on the night of July 11, details from CQW or Quiltsmith. Bookings are through the individual shops not through me.
Gwen will be teaching from her new books, 37 Sketches and Liberated Medallions, depending on which shop you are at.
Trust me when I say that this is a class you don't want to miss out on - and that I will be firmly seated in classes in Sydney with bells on! See you there :)
