Wendy Williams Workshop

Sylvia and I had a really enjoyable day today courtesy of Berry Patchwork Shop and we joined in a workshop with Wendy Williams (Flying Fish Kits) who works and tutors at Material Obsession in Sydney (amongst other places).    Lots of lovely ladies, playing with lots of lovely felt and creating all sorts of gorgeous bits and pieces .... here are some photos of our day .... lots of amazing inspiration here ....


We were all working on covering little bags or work bags, or some were making pincushions ....


Lots of pearl thread and different stitches ...


Bright colours and gorgeous quilts of Wendy's for samples to share ....


A cute little covered case out of Wendy's book which was released recently ...


Amazing cushions ....


A rainbow of colours of pearl thread ...


Gathering around Wendy in navy in the centre left of photo whilst she explained some of her techniques ...


Some of Wendy's beautiful quilts ...


An amazing pincushion .... for someone who loves to play with felt ....


And at the end of the day .... some progress from some of the ladies who chose to do birds ....


And some of the other pieces being worked on throughout the day ....


And my little bit of playing with felt for the day ... this will become more involved and eventually cover a little sewing bag ....


We had a great day ... special thanks to Liz from Berry Patchwork Shop for organising and of course to the delightful Wendy Williams for a really enjoyable workshop !!

  4. Lucky you getting to take a class with Wendy. I did one of her classes in Wellington, NZ in 2013 and I've been hooked ever since. I just made up my sewing kit case before Christmas. You can see it here if you're interested http://wendysquiltsandmore.blogspot.co.nz/2015/01/my-sewing-kit-case.html
