I adore Sashiko - the Japanese hand-quilting technique that traditionally applies white stitching on indigo and shall be spending more of my time now trying this out. If you are a beginner and just curious, you might like to know that Janice Gunner will be holding a weekend class at West Dean from 11 April 2013 - 14 April 2013. The course cost is £286 and the goal is to make a panel for a bag, a cushion or a table centre. Click here to book as these courses fill up very quickly.
Janice has been teaching patchwork and quilting for 20 years, turning freelance as a Textile artist in 1999 which allowed her the opportunity to indulge in her passion to make quilted textile art and to teach both nationally and internationally. Her qualifications include the Diploma in Stitched Textiles (Windsor) and City & Guilds Patchwork & Quilting Parts 1 & 2 (Hitchin). Janice was the first person to be awarded a C&G medal for excellence in Patchwork & Quilting for Part 1. She is a qualified teacher and formerly was also President of The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles 2005 – 2008 having been a member of the Guild since 1982. Here you can see just a few samples of Janice's work. To see more click here.
