Returning to Quilt Norfolk

I'm heading back to Norfolk Island again this October for Quilt Norfolk.
I just love Norfolk Island, and I'm sure you will too. Why not join me for my new workshops
"Sewing in the Secret Garden" and "Stitches Galore". These are mostly hand sewn projects, very relaxing...just like the Island itself.

Norfolk has plenty of history, beautiful scenery, friendly locals and great restaurants and cafe's. Time seems to pass more slowly there.

My friend Lorraine joined me last year and seemed to enjoy the shopping (see photo). Hubby also loves Norfolk Island, particularly the restaurants.

Stitches Galore
Make up at least two unique hand stitched fabric panels. These beautiful textural pieces will be embellished with hand sewn stitches, using a variety of threads, beads and unusual fabrics and embellishments. At a later date, make the panels into small quilts, covers for journals/diaries, cushions, bags, or a multitude of other items.
There will be several different styles / design ideas to choose from, and the pattern booklet will give plenty of ideas for using your works of art, including stretching them over an artist’s canvas for a quick and easy wall hanging.

Sewing in the Secret Garden. Make many delightful sewing accessories and iPad/Phone/Kindle/Samsung Tablet covers, all based around the easy Secret Garden Block. Whether you choose the sewing accessories or the device covers, either way you’ll probably also like to make the diary/ note book cover. All of the patterns can be adapted to any size.
There are so many choices, you’ll need to pick out the ones you really like and make the others later.
The pattern booklet will include full written instructions and diagrams for all of the accessories. See photo below.
