2021 Hope is in the air.....
A huge THANK YOU to you for your support in 2020.
If you read this blog, my Instagram or FaceBook posts, thank you. Deborah Louie Tutor is the best FaceBook site for me.
If you purchased a book or an online class from my web site, thank you.
If you purchased one of my books from a quilt shop thank you.
I am so grateful for your support , and I hope you enjoy my skill building information.
My heart goes out to other countries who are suffering right now with more disastrous Covid 19 cases. Stay safe and happy stitching to you.....May an ending of this pandemic be swift.
MY teaching year for 2021 looks healthy and I am optimistic we can attend the shops, groups and events that are planned in a safe, happy environment.
My teaching schedule is now on my web site.www.deborahlouie.com.au.
I hope to see you at an event in the near future.
I am working on some really lovely new work at the moment and will share once completed and a class program has been finalised. Having the time at home stitching on the machine is wonderful after writing
3 books is refreshing and fun.
Mind you it was hard at first to get into a creative new space again... I suppose not a writers block but a quilters block!!! Thank goodness I am excited again everyday to get up into my room and stitch.
Im super proud of my new book Let's Quilt - The Theory of Walking Foot Quilting.
Available now on my web site https://deborahlouie.com.au/product/lets-quilt-walking-foot-quilting/
A comprehensive guide to quilting your own quilts on your domestic sewing machine. All of my years experience of machine quilting in one book. If you have taken this face to face class or online class with me this is the most update version and so much more information. I highly recommend this book and have been told it is their bible for machine quilting. Which is wonderful to hear....
