Our next stop was Ballarat a wonderful old town were I taught for Emma who owns Ballarat Patchwork. The ladies in the class were very enthusiastic as they worked at layering and embellishing a small cloth appliquéd with their favorite images. It was fun to see many of my ribbons used on the leaves as well as fun fabrics and hand dyed wool. We also learnt how to emboss our lovely silk velvets which we used to layer. We finished the two day class learning many stitches which added great texture and dimension to each piece.
Many thanks Emma and Pam for a great visit.
