Jane McDonald...

We are really excited to be able to host Australian textile artist Jane MacDonald from Bebe Bold at Annie’s April 21-23. Jane is absolutely passionate about Japanese textiles and has taught Sashiko, Kogin and Boro throughout Australia, France and the UK.

This will be an amazing opportunity to learn some new techniques, as well as gain an insight into some the history of and culture behind the stitching that Jane has gained through her many visits and close association with Japan. This will appeal to both quilters and embroiderers and anyone with an interest in hand work.

A 10% discount will be offered on the class fee for those wishing to attend all three classes.

As part of our weekend focusing on Japanese stitching and culture, you are invited to join us for dinner at a local Japanese restaurant here in Ashburton on the Saturday evening. This will be an optional extra at your own expense
