Your tutors for the weekend:

Saturday am: 

Samantha Molloy - She has been sewing for as long as she can remember, and learnt the art of free motion embroidery about 7 years ago.  Having always loved drawing as well as sewing, she was instantly hooked on the technique that combines the best of both worlds.  She used the technique for all kinds of things, her current favourite being creating celebrity portraits.  Sam will be teaching the addictive art of free motion embroidery and use it to create a fabric and thread illustration of a fashionable 1960’s lady in her fabulous mini dress.

 

Saturday pm:

Jo Westfoot -  A quilt designer and contributor to magazines such as Love Patchwork & Quilting, Quilt Now and Make Modern.  She also runs a popular bi-monthly quilt pattern subscription club.  Jo has a bit of an obsession with the rainbow palette! Her designs generally have clean lines, colour pops and a modern look to them.  She will be teaching a foundation paper piecing class at the retreat, sharing all her helpful tips and tricks to help you get better results.
