Where's Galong you ask?
About 210kms south west of where I live, on the road to Young and Cootamundra.
I was a tutor at the Galong Retreat this last weekend and the venue was St Clements Monastery.
The long driveway to this beautiful place
The front entrance to the Monastery
and this was my classroom. Big and so well lit from those big windows.
We had heaps of room and Black Possum quilt shop from Tea Gardens was the vendor.
My class was working on the Quilt-as-you-go Noodle Box and the results were amazing.
Lots of different styles but all looked good.
Some like Jackie even got to start on the quilting - lovely gloves!
The accommodation and dining room were excellent - ensuite rooms with table service at meal times.
Some of my dinner companions enjoying a tipple.
The other tutors were Yan Pring, here with a sample from her class..
take a panel and slash and sew
Brenda Burgess was doing a curved piecing project
this is my class tho some had already left before show-and-tell. Marg Lowe was teaching an embroidery class - no pic sorry.
It was a great weekend and I can't wait to be asked back again!
