Just back from the machine quilting festival in Adelaide.
Big event machine quilters from all over Australia and new Zealand attended. Classes for long arm quilters , mid arm quilters and domestic quilters like me ....
I had 4 classesto teach in 2 days , exhausting but so enjoyable.
Centre of his famous Bohemian rhapsody quilt. he uses all hand dyed fabrics from his own collection has 2 full time staff just dyeing fabrics for him. He uses Bernina stitch # 46 triple blanket stitch and most of the time a contrast colour thread of 50 or 40 weight. His work is stunning.
Julie from Hobby Sew kings park in the background.Julie and I spent Saturday evening which was the gala dinner and Sunday night dinner and a few drinks after teaching at the pub, thanks Julie for your company.
I was disappointed that I didn't get any opportunity to chat with any of the other tutors especially from the states as we were all had very full timetables.
But a great time I had with the students they were so great and so keen they kept me on my toes indeed.
I had Pfaff machines to work on and Cheryl Bryant from Pfaff was my helper in the room and Cheryl was AMAZING Thank you so much for all of your help.
Home for a few days now........
