Teacher Review–Kim Bradley

Our next talented teacher is Kim Bradley from Sydney.
Kim Bradley
Kim is passionate about piecing, quilting and machine embroidery and produces her own designs for quilting, embroidery and appliqué. She is also one of the pioneers of colouring and embellishing quilts. At Festival, Kim will be teaching four classes, all are reasonably priced at just over fifty dollars and go for two hours each, you can see specific details here.  There is something for all skill levels in Kim’s classes.
Kim’s first class is “McTavishing your way” where you will learn how to put your own spin on this popular style of background fill.  You can also join Kim for Feathermology and be inspired to create perfect feathers and to go beyond feathers by adding different motifs to the spine.  Kim’s next class, Beyond pantos, will help you take the leap into custom quilting. Learn how to confidently use rulers and templates as a base for your own stunning designs.
Lastly, you can get out of that design rut and join Kim in her Banish the Boredom class for a fun inspirational session to get your quilting groove back with freehand fills.
Now for some eye candy……………
