Last weekend five ladies attended the Thread Painting Retreat at
Russellee. The ladies came from Sydney, Mittagong, Wagga, The Rock and Batlow. The results of their efforts for the weekend were well received. The workshop concentrated on landscapes.
At first the landscapes seemed to not be happening as we started with the background. Once the foreground and the main features started to be added the delight of the ladies was evident as the landscapes evolved before their eyes.
Russellee's next retreat is a UFO Retreat in June. This retreat is full. We will be having another UFO Retreat 7-9 November. If you are interested in coming please contact me.
Our Quilting Retreat at Sea next February is half full. If you would like any information please contact me or Lorelle. Next year we are sailing to New Zealand and my guest teachers are Helen Godden and Jan Pilgrim. Jan is doing two lovely hand stitched projects on this cruise. She has just sent me a photo of her second workshop of a New Zealand Christmas Bush featuring stumpwork leaves
Bali in October has three spots left. We only do one of these retreats a year. This is a fabulous two weeks of fabric shopping, cloths shopping, sightseeing and of course sewing. The sewing machines are provided and we have a wonderful time sewing the beautiful fabric that we buy there. A highlight of this trip is a hands on class in making a Batik runner.
