All Things Hand Stitching with Jen Kingwell

The time has finally come! The lockdown is over and we can
host retreats again!

We are bringing Jen Kingwell all the way from Torquay,
Australia as a guest instructor at the Lodge.

If you've spent any time at The Quilter's Lodge, you know
that we have oodles of patterns, templates and fabrics by
Jen Kingwell.  We are offering the opportunity to learn
from Jen with her workshop All Things Hand Stitching.

During this two-day workshop, Jen will cover the gentle
art of hand piecing, drafting patterns, cutting templates,
working with acrylic templates, hand applique,
hand quilting and creative ways to finish your quilt.

Step away from the frantic pace of pedal-to-the-metal
sewing and relax, refresh, and retreat, while still
doing what you love.

Your retreat also includes an
enjoyable evening at The Quilter's Lodge on
August 9, 2023 for an inspiring trunk show.  See
Jen's fantastic, scrappy, wonderful quilts. Listen to
her as she shares the stories behind her quilts.
