Berry Quilting Retreat 2014
Elizabeth Dubbelde of Berry Patchwork Shop and her amazing team organize an annual Quilting Retreat in Berry NSW. Liz also organises a wonderful Berry Quilt Show along with two quilting prises. With all proceeds from the Berry Quilt Show going to local children's charity.
The retreat encourages quilters from all around Australia to come together in beautiful historic Berry.
I was a tutor at this years retreat. I had a very talented and willing class, who all seemed to love taking up the challenge to create their own original fabrics from scratch. The days flew by, time was told as Elizabeth brought delicious morning tea, lunch and then afternoon tea to our pavilion.
On Sunday each student created a quilt or sewn item. 5 quilt tops were finished. They really were beautiful.
I was super busy though I managed to take a few photos with my SLR hoping to capture some moments. The individuality of each person shines in the fabrics they created.
I enjoyed teaching enormously and was thrilled with what was created thanks to all who came along.
At the end of the two busy and stimulating days we had a show and tell in the quilt display so we could see what all the other classes with cleaver tutors had created.
It was really was a fabulous weekend.
