Teaching in the US – yeah!!

I will be in the US in October and November 2015 running needleturn applique workshops.  All classes will include preparing your blocks using a light box – NO templates – as well as various methods of needleturn applique.

I have now finalised my US teaching schedule and here it is:

  1. Your quilts are amazing! I love the flowers and vases and colors. One of these. times when you visit the U.S. I’ll be in one of your classes but not this year. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Irene,
    How exciting to see all your US classes. If I were still in Vermont in November, I would definitely attend your class in Manchester but we leave the end of October for Florida.

    I’m trying to find info on the Nov. 11 Trunk Show in Tampa as I could possibly get there to see you!!

    I saw your photo etc in Quiltmania. Congratulations again on the new book.

    Your Vermont friend. Marsha
