I was so very lucky to be able to have Wendy Williams come from Sydney and teach in my shop.
A long time fan of Wendy’s methods and of course her super fantastic quilts and cushions.
We were lucky also to be able to view a suitcase full of her works…. the detail in Over the Hill amazing… it’s very hard to pick a favourite.
The girls in the class worked well and were very happy with the day.

Sending out monthly newsletters…….via this website .
Annoying you with reminders about classes…. etc etc
