Cathy Jack Coupland Demonstration Report

Guild attendees at last weekend's year end General Meeting were treated to a Thread Painting Demonstration by member Cathy Jack Coupland.

Kismet - Cathy Jack Coupland,  Judges Commendation - Mixed techniques Sydney Quilt Show 2013

Cathy very generously shared the many tips and tricks that she has formulated over  the years whilst producing through freestyle machine embroidery, ever increasingly exquisite and perceptive Fibre Art.

Moving beyond sheer pattern decoration and shape and colour relationship exercise, Cathy's philosophy of 'Sense of Place and Belonging' is being explored in increasingly personal works. Inspiration evolves from varying sources and with a commitment to excellence, Cathy devotes many hours to the perfection of her design work prior to the commencement of final works.

The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc is blessed to have a Fibre Artist of Cathy's calibre within their midst, and on Saturday presented her with a well earned Teaching Certificate.

Cathy is an accredited Teacher of Special Techniques.
Congratulations Cathy!
