Special Workshop Opportunity! Chilli Pepper, Rosemary and Olive Wreath.




I will be hosting a day’s workshop and quilting in my historic house in Baie D’Urfe to the first twelve applicants to each workshop (one held at the weekend, one during the week). All proceeds raised from this workshop will go to Fondation Melio (www.fondation-melio.org) so not only will you have a fantastic day but know that your participation will go towards the purchase of a medical treadmill needed by Marie Enfant Rehabilitation Centre, the only rehabilitation centre in Quebec for under 18s and yet not in possession of this vital piece of equipment to help those children with brain and spinal injuries learn to walk again. For those who would like to know more, please see the video featuring our friend Manny, and his mother Sandra as they talk about why the centre needs this piece of equipment. Click on the website above, go to Videos and click on the third on the right to see Manny and why he needs to use a medical treadmill. For those of you anxious to have this design in your Deborah Kemball Library but who live too far away to attend the workshop this pattern and instructions is available to you for $20 plus postage and packing. Again all proceeds raised through the sale of this pattern will go to Fondation Melio.

The Workshop….

We will work on this design during the day – you will receive a full sized design, full instruction and demonstrations during the day for completion of this wreath. At 18” square it would be beautiful as a pillow or quilt centre. It is a new pattern and will only be available through this workshop. This is not a complicated design for applique and features my completely NEW embroidery stitch, seen here as rosemary and will be the first time I have demonstrated this stitch. Even if you have attended my workshops before I think you would benefit from this workshop as not only is there a completely new stitch and chilli peppers, but the leaves are rather different from my standard leaves and I shall be demonstrating this in silks and discuss at length the techniques used for silk applique. NB There are no sewn stems in this design! The day will also include a trunk show of my quilts and the chance to see many of them hanging throughout our house. I will cover all aspects of quilting and applique both with silks and traditional quilting fabrics. Home made snacks and drinks will be provided and I think it will be the most fantastic day, lots of fun and a great way to while away a winter’s day. Please come and help me raise money for this important piece of equipment. The treadmill costs $450,000.00 so there’s work to be done!

Dates: Sunday February 16th 10 am – 5 pm Monday February 17th 10 am – 5 pm Workshop Price $80 includes pattern, instructions, snacks and drinks. Easy parking too.

    Hi Debby, I will not be able to assist at your workshop. I will be in Florida. But give me your address and I will send some money for the Fondation Melio. Bye Louise Monty
