I spent a lovely weekend in Vancouver Canada teaching for Uschi and Kerry who own the company Wool Penny Rugs. The classes were filled with enthusiastic students. In the first class we started the floral applique for a journal cover using wool, cotton and velvet applique then learnt a few stitches that would enhance the piece. The second class was focused on Leaf Play. Layering and creating unique leaves. It was a busy few days but at the end of class Uschi gave me a whirlwind tour of Vancouver starting with a little bit of retail therapy in Granville Island. During my trip I was also treated to great seafood. It was a great trip and I look forward to returning in 2014.
