Friday Showcase 6 May with Wendy Nutt

Friday, 6 May 10am - 11.30 am
Guild Office, Level 5, 276 Pitt St Sydney

All welcome. $5.00 members, $10.00 guests
For as long as Wendy  can remember, there have been fabrics and threads around her. From a very early age she has cut, shaped, sewn and created toys, clothes and any number of items that could be constructed from the materials she had at hand. Wendy is relatively new to patchwork and quilting, compared to many. Training as a tertiary sewing teacher has given Wendy a broad skills base in design and construction enabling her to advance her piecing and quilting skills quickly, gaining several quilting awards.
In Wendy's  classes there is an emphasis on a fun and relaxed atmosphere conducive to a positive learning experience. Wendy gets great joy from seeing people achieve skills they thought far beyond their capabilities. She enjoys designing quilts, preferring modern styles, being heavily influenced by historic quilters such as the Amish and Gee's Bend Quilters. Many other traditional styles also inspire her modern designs. All of her quilts are machine pieced and quilted using a multitude of techniques. Wendy currently lives in the beautiful Port Stephens region and this also has a strong influence on the quilt designs she creates.
