Brenda had one more workshop, another “Dear Jane”, and with the class not full, Linda, GJ and I were able to participate!! So exciting!!
The shop for this workshop was Sewn and Quilted
I was so appreciative of all I learnt from Brenda; I will now approach making my blocks in a new light! Brenda explained some great techniques and gave us fabulous tips on how to deal with some of the trickier ones. Lots learnt and lots to inspire! A nicer lady would be hard to find; Brenda is so generous with her knowledge and sharing all that she has discovered in her Dear Jane Journey, and she’s a great raconteur with a very dry wit. Makes for a fun workshop!
So there you have it! Four very successful workshops, two fabulous, informative lectures, and the Mastermind behind it all? Our own Quilts in the Barn hostess, Linda!!
I was so thrilled when Linda asked if I would help out with these events, and it’s proved a most rewarding experience. Linda has the perfect venue in The Barn, and is a wonderful organiser and hostess. Thank you Linda for asking me along on this journey!
I’ve been though all my photos and I’m missing two; one is the goody bag that each student received and the other is Linda’s scones. Each workshop morning Linda baked scones; hot from the oven, they were ready for the students’ arrival and eagerly devoured. Succulent savoury scones on Day 1 and delicious date and orange on Day 2…..yum!! I think Linda deserves the title, “Queen of the Scones”!!
We were very fortunate to receive some considerable donations for our goody bags, including magazines from Homespun, gift vouchers from Betty McDowell, and larger Betty McDowell gift vouchers and template sets from Victorian Textiles for door prizes. Thank you for these generous donations.
As well as having fun at the workshops, part of each student’s fee helps towards a cause very dear to women’s hearts, and the main reason Linda holds all these events at QITB, Breast Cancer Research.
I know I had fun!
