Highlights of the Brisbane Quilt and Craft Fair

IMG_6508What a great show! It was really wonderful to be at the Brisbane Quilt and Craft Fair the week following teaching in the Sunshine Coast and the 2 day workshop for the Queensland Quilters, because it felt like a steady stream of friends kept stopping by to say hi. Sue Duffy and Brenda Wood were a few star students in the 2 day Acrylic Inks workshop, they were so fun to paint with. They belong to a talented group of textile artists called the Reddy Arts. I know if I lived in Brisbane, I’d want to hang out and make art with them on a regular basis too.

Throughout the week I taught short workshops in the pop up classroom Cecile has in the Unique Stitching booth.Unique Stitching
So much beautiful work was produced around this table.

After I suggested we get a photo together, Ali gave us a few tips on proper posing. proper posingIt took Sue and I a minute or two to get it down, lol, we look downright professional now 🙂sue ali judy


I was also very touched by the gifts I received at the show, they’ll be lovely reminders of my time in Australia.IMG_6507
