International Quilt Convention – Africa!

Big news flash! 
I will be teaching at the first ever International Quilt Convention–Africa in Johannesburg, South Africa next year! The event will take place July 27-29, 2012 at the luxurious Emperors Palace resort. I am so excited to be taking part in this convention; it will be wonderful to meet African quilters, and to see a bit of their beautiful country. 

The convention will feature exciting quilting and fiber art workshops by popular South African teachers, as well as these international teachers:
The organizers have already lined up a impressive group of sponsors, and there will be a large vendor hall and exhibitions from selected international and local quilters. I’ll be teaching three classes:
Thread Sketching: Snowflakes
Thread Sketching: Dragonfly
Start With a Photo: Round Red Barn
Here’s a little video clip I made for the organizers of the show to use in their promotion of the event:

  7. What a exciting experience! We've stayed there and it was impressive. On our last morning, I wandered around the hotel taking photos of light fittings and decorations and all sorts of wonderful things - they probably thought I was crazy...
