Berry Retreat

What an amazing time I had teaching in Berry NSW at their art retreat. I taught my two day fabric journal workshop and had some very talented students, their work was fabulous.

the workshop was held in the workroom at the back of Berry Patchwork shop, such a lovely atmosphere and surrounded by the most gorgeous fabrics, I couldn't resist purchasing some.

this is a small selection of each student's work, they were all lovely.

the front of the house where we stayed for a week

the back of the house, it was surrounded by lots of bush and a lovely little creek, kangaroos and wombats for company

There was also an amazing Quilting Show and Exhibition as part of the retreat, the work was stunning, including some fabulous pieces by Caroline Sharkey and Wendy Williams. I didn't have any textile work to hang so I took my paintings and was shocked to see they all sold on the first day, eight in total. Elizabeth Dubbelde organised the whole Retreat, she did a wonderful job, all her efforts made it an extremely successful event and she's one lovely lady too, as is Sue who works in the shop for her, nothing was too much for her.

I've also added a few more paper kits to my Etsy shop

Thanks for dropping by and your kind comments, back shortly

Well Ro it looks like the Berry Workshop was a total success. The
pages the girls produced looked absolutely fantastic and each one's work is so different.
Congrats on selling all your paintings - you must be so thrilled.
A total win win week!
