Jeannie Balemi

I'm back!  And this time I'd like to tell you all about the fantastic class Jeannie Balemi is offering at Festival.

Jeannie is a talented quilter from New Zealand who has amazing sea views from her studio.  Talk about inspiration!  She has over 16 years experience as a teacher and students travel to her studio every week to learn from this wonderful tutor.


Join Jeannie for her Forest Tapestry class where you will create the amazing wall hanging pictured below.  In the class you will learn Jeannie's simplified applique technique to create the stunning fern fronds and then machine quilt the wall hanging with fern motifs.  This is a 6hr, hands on class and Pfaff machines will be provided for you, or you can bring your own tagged and tested machine.  You can learn more about the class here.


The kit for the wall hanging is included in the class fee and includes the precut fused applique pieces plus all the fabric and thread for the entire project.  It sounds like a great way to spend the day to me!
