We have had great interest in all our workshops
and we still have vacancy’s in all of them at the moment,
though we expect that to change in the near future.
So if you are still wanting a place we should be able to accommodate you.

These are the only workshops Brenda and Patty
will be doing during their visit here to Australia.

l have listed below all the workshop dates and what each class entails.
The cost of the workshop is $300 for the 2 day classes.
A $50 non refundable deposit is required to secure your spot.

There will also be a few surprises you!

    So. Um. Do you think you could hang quilts in the barn around the 17th or 18th of September and use an extra volunteer? I know it’s early, but it’s free labor LOL!!!
