Cindy Needham

Hi, my name is Shontelle Stanyer and over the coming months I will be reviewing different courses we have on offer and telling you about some of the fabulous teachers who are going to be joining us at the Australian Machine Quilting Festival this year.  

The first teacher I would like to introduce is Cindy Needham. 
Cindy’s work is nothing short of amazing and as she won the Machine Quilting Teacher of the Year award in 2010, you know that she is going to be an awesome teacher too.   Cindy is offering five classes this year at festival and you can read about them here
 Many people think that the Machine Quilting Festival is just for longarmers – this is absolutely not the case. Cindy is just one of our teachers who is offering classes for quilting on a domestic machine. Her classes will take you through everything from thread selection, to design, to a hands-on, in depth introduction to machine quilting on a domestic machine. For the hands-on class we will have lovely Pfaff machines supplied for you or you can bring your own tested and tagged machine.  

One of the real treats at festival this year will be Cindy’s Linen Ladies lecture. This lecture will feature many of Cindy’s exquisite linen wholecloths and you will learn how to create your own masterpiece from ordinary household linens. Here is a sneak peak of Cindy’s trunk show. What a thrill it will be to see these masterpieces up close! 


Check out Cindy’s blog where she talks about her workshops and shares her students’ work.
If you have ever wanted to learn to machine quilt on your domestic machine then Cindy’s class is not to be missed! Don’t let the opportunity to learn from a master teacher slip by. 

Have a great week everyone. I'll be back next week to introduce Loes van der Heidjen from Art and Stitch.
