Forthcoming Visit by Vikki Pignatelli

Vikki Pignatelli, American quiltmaker, lecturer and teacher, is coming to Australia with the support of the Barbara Meredith International Tutor Trust in April and May 2009. The Committee has booked her to do a lecture on Saturday, 2nd May, 2009.

Vikki has developed a simple layering technique that is a blend of piecing and appliqué. She is the author of two books featuring this technique, “Quilting Curves” and “Quilting by Improvisation”.

The lecture will be held at the Epping Creative Leisure Centre, Saturday, 2nd May, 2009. Time is 1.30pm for 2.00pm start. The lecture ‘10 Attributes that Make a Good Quilter Better’ is for one hour. A question and answer session and showing of quilts is included.

All members, guests and interested persons welcome. The entry fee is $10.00. A light afternoon tea will be provided.

If there is sufficient interest, a 3 hour workshop can be organized for the morning. At least 16 people would be required. The fee will be approximately $50.00 (yet to be confirmed due to cost of A$) A $25.00 deposit will be required by 1st April, 2009 to hold your place. The balance will be advised with date of final payment.

There are two workshops ‘Crazy about Curves’, making curves fun to do, without the hassle of measuring seam allowances and ‘Scrap the Pattern-Improvisational Curves, an impromptu approach to piecing curves, offering total freedom in quiltmaking. Please state which workshop you would be most interested in and we will book the one with the most interest.

To register your expression of interest, please e-mail the office or leave a clear telephone message on (02) 9283 3737 or (02) 4628 1170.

Please get your friends together and support this initiative. We can’t do it without your support!
