I'm progressing on....

At the end of September, straight after spending an extended time away overseas, I went to the second AMQF in Adelaide to attend a one-day workshop by Ricky Tims, and long arm quilting classes for Gammill Statler users with Susan Smith. I have learnt so many useful techniques and tips for patchwork, and for domestic machine and long arm quilting. Ricky was also good fun and entertaining. His music was interesting and different, and as far as piano is concerned, he’s wonderful. Susan was clear with her explanation while taking everyone in the class through Creative Studio 4.1 and working with the Gammill Statler. During the festival, I have also met a couple of people, whom I very much admire their craftwork and designs; Deborah Louie and Hermione Agee. I had a chance to have a little chat with Deborah during the short break but didn’t attend any of her classes. Hermione was bubbly and helpful while I was looking through all her lovely designed patterns. I have now got a few of her patterns to add to my E2E collection for my wonderful Gammill Statler.

Ricky was playing his instrument at AMQF Gala Dinner
on Saturday 29th September 2012.

Finally, flying into Sydney on my 14th flight of the trip.!
Very happy to be back home. :-D
