The 6th annual Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival is now a fond memory. Class participants in my Beginner Free Motion Feathers
class came from such places as Antigonish, Northport, Saulnierville, Moncton, Sackville,Springhill, Truro, Parrsboro, PEI...and even two from Amherst! Our two Island gals especially had a lot of free motion experience under their belts and they really flew with the feathers (ahem...)... but for everyone, there was marked improvement in the stitching of the feather plumes between the start and end of the day. Folks went home pleased with their renewed quilting confidence.
Sitting and stitching hours on end as you try to do your best work makes for an intense day, but the smiles stayed intact to the end. It's a privilege to spend time with such enthusiastic quilters dedicated to learning and improving their skills.
Leave it to Joan to do something this beautiful on her feathered wreath:
Thanks to all for a great workshop. It's both humbling and gratifying to have students return year after year and I appreciate your support immensely. l look forward to meeting up with all my quilting friends for next year's festival - mark your calendars!
