Creative Construction NZ

The programme for NZ National Quilting Symposium is out now.
With over 60 NZ and International tutors there is a class for everyone. I'm really excited to be amongst the faculty who'll be teaching in Christchurch, 6-10 October 2017.
The registration book was posted out this week and the full listing of classes is now available online. Register for Symposium now so as to secure the lowest possible registration number and to optimise your chances of being allocated your preferred classes and events.
The closing date for priority workshop bookings is 28 February 2017. 

You can read my bio on page 98 of the programme and see my list of classes.

First up will be three days of Strippy Sampler using a different technique in each strip.
Make fabric, piece strata, cut and sew freehand curves and tackle some foundation piecing. This quilt has it all.

Then a one day class to make this Pickled Fish block. You'll explore foundation piecing, curved seams, colour and value tips.

And lastly, a one day class for Snowball Circle - big blocks made using freezer paper templates, with curved piecing and colour and value hints thrown in.
I'd love to see you in Christchurch next year, a city undergoing a massive rebuild after the earthquake in 2011.
Hope to see you there!


  1. Sounds a great opportunity for your students to perfect the art of foundation piercing under your excellent tutorage
