My very first teaching trip to the USA was in 2005 where I taught how to use rulers on a longarm at MQX in Manchester, New Hampshire. It was the most amazing trip with my husband along, where we drove 1500 miles in a hire car twice – through many states. We got lost in Chicago & also in New York, where we had to ask for directions in ‘the Bronx’ & got yelled at whilst going the wrong way down a one way street. Memories….
Went to Lancaster and visited some Amish stores and simply absorbed some of the unique culture of this area.
A very special time was at MQX where I was also a student between classes where I was the teacher. One such class was with Jamie Wallen, who is such a gentleman with an amazing artistic talent who can really teach anyone to quilt. A unique combination for sure! I have sold his products for many, many years now and would like to offer some of my favourite DVD’s to you at some very special prices…
The class I attended was ‘Threadfusion’. Sadly(?) – it meant I immediately went to the vendor floor & purchased a full range of metallic threads to be able to come home & use what I learnt in class from Jamie using these amazing threads. I still have all those threads and have only replaced a couple of colours since that time. I think that means I don’t use them enough or get the right quilts to use them on??

As he stitches you will feel as though you are in the “driver’s seat”.
