Just home last night after a terrific retreat again.
The Patchworkers and Quilters of the Hawksbury Inc run a retreat this time every year at Maroo. This was my 3rd year teaching.
They have an amazing committee of hard working committed ladies who do an amazing job to give their members a fantastic weekend of learning, fun and shopping. This event has sponcers who are generous and when you arrive a goodie bag is given.
I had a lovely gropu of 14 eager ladies.
We had a terrific big class room and the first day was free motion quilting feathers, fills and fun.
I worked them towards fabalous feathers. Look at the results
Hence the logo The BIg Bang......Lots of dissapointed faces at the announcement even some tears but all things change. This might be the opportuntiy for something new to be arranged you never know ..
I didnt manage to get photos of more amazing quilting, yes you Rhonda and Pam fantasic feathers well done ....Then day two I showed the new technique of template designing your own quilting patterns which was very well recieved.
Then they asked great advice for quilting theior own quilts and got on woith the job of quilting. I was very impressed by the eagerness to get on and quilt.
Thank you ladies I had a terrfic time with you all.
Unfortunalty this was the last reteat. After 23 years the committee has called it quits. They have done a wonderful event for all of those years and feel time to go out with a bang...
Lessa Siegele is the patron of the event and was presented with a signed banner .
Lessa also organised a metre of signhed by every one who attended fabric for all of the committee with fabric to make a special remembrance quilt to show our gratitude to the hard work of the last 23 years.
Thanks for listening
