Our speaker was Dale Rollerson of the Thread Studio. She was very entertaining and I loved looking at her work up close afterwards.
I've been preparing a post to share our recent South Island holiday explorations so that will be up next time. Have a great weekend


  1. WOW, what stunning works. I particularly love the light purple and yellow flowers one, and the face, and the mini felted 'quilts'.
