So the Gwen Marston train has left the station, and she is in Melbourne for Amitie tomorrow. She will be in Sydney in early July and there are still places for her night lecture, which I assure you will be well worth seeing for all quilters, and perhaps particularly interesting for "Modern" quilters. The lecture is called Abstract Quilts in Colour, she will have quilts to show and interesting things to tell you.
The lecture is on July 11 at 7pm for 7.30. It's at the auditorium at Mary MacKillop Place in North Sydney. There are loads of lovely places to go for dinner etc beforehand if you wanted to go with a group, and there will also be a light supper provided afterwards. Tickets are $50 and you can book through Cottage Quiltworks at 9997 4661.
Don't miss this opportunity, Gwen is one of my all time favourite quilters. She has never been to Australia before and will likely never come again, so get in quick and see a real live Quilter talk about her craft. See you there!
Also during that week is the Cottage Quiltworks Winter Escape. I am teaching July 11 and 12, you can come along and make this quilt:
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, which is so new it's not finished yet (don't judge, I had gastro last week). Don't worry it will be finished in time for class! It's an Aussie flag (obviously), but I am happy if you want to make a NZ flag, or indeed an Italian one or a French one or whatever! You can also make anything you like from any of my books, I'm not choosy. There are only a few spots left though so be quick and come along for two lovely days of stitching and chatting and being creative. Bookings also through Cottage Quiltworks.
