Michele Hill
I've shown Michele Hill's lovely quilt last because she was our very entertaining speaker to finish the first day. If you like William Morris quilts, you will know her name.
She has done some lovely posts about Taupo symposium on her blog HERE.
Wonder what we'll get to see at the next Symposium  which is to be held here in Palmerston North 16-21 January 2015 (click on the poster below to enlarge)
Registrations are open now and the website has gone live. There's already a list of confirmed international tutors.
I still have more to share about my Taupo symposium experience so see you again soon.

Hi Lynette, I had 45 mins to look at the exhibition which was hugely disappointing but I just didn't have time, so thanks for adding the pics. And for the lovely comments re my quilt :)

Wow, some really mind blowing quilts. I'm going to the Festival of Quilts (UK) this year, I'm hoping that there will be some equally amazing quilts on show.
