Teacher Review–Michele Turner

Many of you may know Michele through her column that she has written for Quilter’s Companion over the past year or so.  Michele is an outstanding quilter and has won awards both Nationally and Internationally and now adds the title of Master Quilter to her bow.
AMQF are fortunate to have Michele teaching for us again this year, her classes in 2010 were a great success receiving fantastic feedback from her students.
Michele is teaching two classes this year, the first Custom Quilting the Smart Way is where you will learn to quilt smarter by working efficiently and still make a profit if you are quilting for customers.  This class will help you come up with designs to enhance your quilt using easy marking techniques and methods.  The second, Wholecloth Quilt Design will teach you the fundamentals of design so that you can make your own wholecloth.  Michele will guide you through the process of choosing motifs and using complimentary background fillers.  You will also learn how to mark out your wholecloth and the method Michele uses for her trapunto work.  This class is for all quilters – longarm, domestic and hand quilting!
Feast your eyes on Michele’s gorgeous quilting candy!!

Alzheimer’s Benefit Quilt Challenge

The extended date for the Quilt Challenge of 13th July has now passed, however, if you still wish to send your quilt for the auction you are more than welcome.  If it arrives here before judging day we will allow it to be judged, otherwise it will be hung at Festival to enable people to bid for it which will enable us to raise as much money as possible for Alzheimer’s.
Change of Teacher
Due to family matters, Jo Northcott, has had to withdraw from teaching at Festival and we wish her all the best in the coming months!
We are very fortunate, and grateful, to have Kim Bradley step in at this stage and provide us with her own classes in Jo’s timeslots plus one extra on Saturday.  Kim’s bio and classes can be seen here.  We’re sure the classes that Kim has offered will make a wonderful addition to your experience at “Festival”.
If you are one of the students that have enrolled in Jo’s classes you should have received a separate email.  You have the option of withdrawing or we can transfer you to Kim’s class/s.  We apologise sincerely for the inconvenience that this may have caused.
Until next time,
Sharon & Tracey
