I had a blast teaching in Adelaide, AU at their Australian Machine Quilting Festival. I met so many wonderful quilters and artists while I was there! Here is where Adelaide is, located in South Australia:
I had several nice flights from my home in Northern CA to Adelaide. Admittedly, it took me well over a day of travel to get there, but arrived safe and sound to my hotel, which was close to the show venue at the Adelaide Convention Center.
What impressed me the most was how incredibly friendly all the students and people I met were. Judging by my class feedback, they liked me, too! :-) It was fun to meet students I had previously “met” online through social media in person. I loved teaching at this show, and show owners Tracey Browning and Sharon Parkinson were so welcoming, and frankly amazing women for all their hard work on this show.
It was also a blast seeing friends I hadn’t seen in a few years. This includes Jamie Wallen, Tracey Browning, and her talented sister, Helen Stubbings. I also met some other teachers for the first time: Cathy Wiggins, Cristyn Merry, Michelle Pearson, Helen Godden, Vicki Jenkins, and Judi Madsen.
More to follow, including photos of quilts I saw. There was a special exhibit featuring the amazing work of Pam Holland. I was blown away by her thread play and creativity, plus her lecture at the Charity Gala was quite inspiring! Stay Tuned! Hugs, Carla
