Since everyone at the workshop was already an accomplished quilter the quality of the finished work was excellent and lots of ideas were explored.
Thank you to Maureen, Liz, Birgitta, Chantal, Ann, Del, Sheila, Diane, Maureen, Liz, Barbara, Alison and Steve for a great day.
Here are some pictures of the day as it unfolded
Lunch was followed by...... more cake!
Exploring layers of transparent fabrics and different colour choices
Some of the semi-finished pieces
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the fabulous work the ladies of Hardy Quilters created. It was a great day with lots of experimentation and exploration with the techniques of faux trapunto, free motion quilting and the layering of transparent fabrics. Thanks, ladies. I would love to see your pieces when they are finished.
A very big 'Thank you' to LA-CO Industries Inc and Artemio
I am delighted to say that I received a lovely reply from a lady called Lidia Salgado from LA-CO Industries, Inc (the American manufacturers of Markal Artist Paintsticks).
This is what she wrote:
We would like to thank you for using our product and spreading the word on the Artist Paintstiks!
I am working on your request as we would absolutely like to assist you.
Please give me a day or two to see how I can get samples to you ASAP.
Well, the next day I had another lovely note, this time from Céline Van Vynckt from Artemio in Belgium. Lidia asked her to organise the paintsticks for me since delivery from Belgium would be quicker. As you can imagine, I was not only delighted, but amazed at the generosity of LA-CO and the kindness of Artemio in expediting the samples to me.
So, to all the people who will be attending the 'Techniques' workshop soon - you have these wonderful Markal Paintsticks to look forward to experimenting with, thanks to the generosity of LA-CO Industries Inc, the manufacturers of Markal Paintsticks. How great is that?
