Workshop at Nadelwelt 2015, Karlsruhe, Germany, May 15th
My second workshop outside Denmark. We got along in
English and the 20 participants (over two days) did very well. Nadelwelt supplied an
interpreter on stand-by in case of language difficulties. Someone even had a little
exhibition of her work!

Workshop for the Sea & Fjord Quilters, Hals, March 2014
The sun shone from a clear sky and the windows looked out
on to the fjord. The participants were nevertheless able to concentrate and

Workshop in Lystrup, February 2014

And fine they were, after five hours hard work!
Workshop for Kreastedet, Frederikshavn, April 2013
On the first spring-like day of the year, in the middle of

Two workshops for Nordsjællandsk Quiltelaug, October 2010
First day. The usual concentration - no time wasted.
Outside the sun shone on the town of Birkerød and the trees glowed in autumn
colours, perhaps inspiring the choice of hair?
Second day, new class, same concentration as the day
before. Overcast outside, but definitely not inside, where everyone enjoyed
being allowed to use their fantasy.
