Start date: December 2, 2021

End date: December 5, 2021

Time: 10.00am to 4.30pm

Location: Melbourne Exhibition & Convention Centre, South Wharf, Melbourne


Each year I usually attend this wonderful quilters experience set in the historic Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne. This year the dates and venue has changed due to COVID. AQC will now run from 2nd December to 5th December at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre, South Wharf.

In 2021 I’m excited to be teaching some classes at AQC.  This experience will be new for me, teaching in my home town.

Class sign ups are now open for all AQC classes.

My Classes

“Framed” Quilt

Thursday 2nd December, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Fabric panels are always tempting but also challenging to use creatively in a quilt. Just adding multiple borders is hardly satisfying as a quilter. This workshop will start you on the path to creating a one-of-a-kind quilt using an art panel and sashing. It is fast and easy, lots of fun and so beautiful!

Kits are available.

Angle Tote Bag

Friday 3rd December, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

I designed this tote bag pattern to use fat quarters of Kaffe Fassett fabric, paired with a solid base fabric. It also works very well with African fabric, batiks and modern prints.
The bag has two large pockets inside to place all those essentials and a large central space to stash quilt projects, knitting, library books, whatever you need to carry.

Allow for a good variety of fabric colour. Don’t be afraid to pick large bold patterns!
