Fabulous Fat Quarter Quilts with Lynne Wilson

Article from: Archive - Workshop

We LOVE that Lynne is returning to STEPHS to teach how to make beautiful quilts using a practical and creative approach!

Have you ever wondered how to:

  * maximise your fabrics,
  * minimise your sewing time and
  * still create gorgeous quilts? 

Let the very talented and dynamic Lynne Wilson show you how.

Lynne will be our very special guest tutor and ‘share the knowledge’ with you in her two-day workshop at Steph’s in July 2014. You may not immediately recognise the name – but most of you will have crossed paths with Lynne at some time.

* As a successful shopkeeper- Lynne was founder of Berrima Patchwork and more recently My Place in Bowral.
* As a designer of patterns for Moda
* Indirectly through HQW – distributors of all your favourite patterns books homewares and sewing notions.

Lynne has perfected efficient methods for making beautiful quilts, both in time and fabric.
