Epworth Retreat

October 23, 2012 1 Comment

Hello Everyone I am excited about my next teaching  engagement. I am going to be teaching at the Epworth Retreat. November 10-11 2012. Epworth Retreat is a wonderful relaxing retreat on the shores of lake Kapiro. I have been fortunate to go to this retreat over the last few years and have always enjoyed meeting fellow quilters and sharing with friends. This year I will be sharing my techniques for applique, I am a self confessed lover of applique and as you have seen, my quilts never seem to be complete without it. Although there are one or two that I have refrained from adding applique to. I now do most of my applique be machine, but I love that it still has the look of hand work. I have taken the time to test various different applique techniques to get the look I prefer. I have then incorporated parts of these  and added my own tricks to create my preferred technique. I also have various tools that I use to create my applique. These tools make applique perfection easily achievable, without any special expertise. Jackie and I will also have the Pine Valley Quilts shop at the retreat, we will have a good stock of supplies for the class and loads of other goodies for everyone. These are the quilts I will be teaching. Posy Basket Quilt   I am also organizing my schedule for classes next year so if you have a group interested in one of my classes I am happy to organize a date to suit.   Happy Stitching Sharon

I have been missing in action for a few days....... do you get withdrawal symptoms when you don't get to sew?... I do. Seriously I'm addicted!

Today is a good day, I am in my happy place at the sewing machine. My machine is cleaned and oiled, with a new needle and I am ready to go. I plan to get busy finishing the flying geese units for the final border on my Vintage Nine Patch Quilt.

This month (January) the Small Wonders Club quilt pattern is called 'Rose of Thorns'. I am in love with this little quilt it has all my favourite colours in it and of course a little applique too. I think I'm also addicted to Flying Geese blocks, they are so cute in the border. Rose Of Thorns measures 22 inches square.
