For our second workshop with the beautiful and talented Rachaelaisy will be taking a fun day of hand sewing Yo-Yo's.
Yo-Yo's, aka Suffolk Puffs or how about some double fun, Yo-Yo Puffs! If just the name makes you smile, then imagine a fun day of hand sewing with Rachaeldaisy where she will share all her tricks and tips for making these wonderful 3D puffs, from traditional styles to the modern versions she uses in her award winning quilts.
Rachaeldaisy lives in the beautiful Blue Mountains and is an award winning quilt maker and designer who specialises in colour, depth and texture. She has always been interested in colour and design from a very early age and worked as a florist before discovering the art of quiltmaking. She has been super passionate about everything quilty since that day and we are not surprised.
She has again won awards for her quilts and has recently published a book with Quiltmania called Whizz Bang, Adventures in Folded Fabric. We have limited copies of this little beauty, so call us to reserve your copy!
