Quilt in Clarens

Hi Everyone,

This past weekend was spent in Wakkerstroom at the Natural Fibre Fair - an amazing amount of fun! It was very well attended and I came home with some beautiful things. I bought a fabulous handbag and bangles from Jenni de la Hunt and Machel Erasmus,some some sari silk ribbon from Jandri Barnard that will find itself in a weaving project in a future Stitches issue and I also got some 100% local cashmere and an invite to visit the farm!  The B&B, Laventaba, was lovely and Wendy a perfect hostess (and they have a cat that moves furniture!!!)  I'm looking really forward to the next one.

Next on the agenda is Quilt in Clarens. This takes place from the 10th - 14th July 2012 and is always a wonderful winter breakaway. There are lots of interesting workshops and vendors and exhibition, besides all the little shops and galleries that make up Clarens!

Here's the scedule and to find out more about each individual workshop, check the Quilt in Clarens FB page

There is a registration fee of R40.00 and workshops cost R280.00 for full day and R140.00 for half day.
