Teacher in the Spotlight - Helen Godden

Hi everyone!

Today's teacher in the spotlight is Helen Godden.

Helen is an incredibly artistic quilter who has won many international awards for her work.  Luckily for us she is also an accessible, down-to-earth teacher!  She has a knack for unlocking the secrets of machine quilting for her students, so you'll be sure to have a lightbulb moment in her class where you finally "get it".

At Festival Helen is teaching two very popular classes, the first of which is Liberation From the Ditch.  In this 2hr, hands-on class you will be using Handiquilter Sweet 16 machines (that in itself is something to get excited about!) and you will learn Helen's three key secrets to successful free-motion nachine quilting.  No more just stiching in the ditch and struggling with the quilt during the process!

Helen's second class is the very cool Free-Motion Funky Flowers class which will see you incorporating raw edge applique with bobbin work, again using the wonderful HQ Sweet 16 machines.  The class fee includes the kit for this project and just look at what you'll get to make!


 

Talk to you soon!
