What a wonderful reception I received at Patchwork Passion in Auckland, New Zealand. Many of the students had created quilts form my designs and they brought them all to share with me. It was overwhelming to see them all. My work in New Zealand was initiated by my friend Jan and her friend Val. Thanks for such great support.
I taught for Robyn who owns Patchwork Passion. We did the classes in a lovely large hall with great light and lots of room to move around. The students were enthusiastic and had lots of great creations to share at he end of class. We used hand dyed velvets, wools and cottons for layering and many fun threads for embellishemnt.
Wendy and I spent a little time sight seeing. Robyn took us up One Tree Hill and Mt Eden which are both very old Volcanos. One Tree was filled with sheep and cattle and Mt Eden had a great view overlooking Aukland from all directions. We had a wonderful visit. Just too short.
Many thanks Robyn for taking such good care of us. We look forward to visiting New Zealand again.
lives in Aukland and she has been coming to our retreats in Ohio for many years. It was great to be in her home town and share with everyone some of the techniques.
