I would like to wish you all out there a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful happy and healthy 2014.
I would also like to say a big, "Thank you" to so many people who have been involved in my quilting life throughout this year. To Jill, Chrissie, Bette, Sonya and Jan at the shop, the biggest "Thank You" for your warmth, your laughter and for creating a most beautiful place to work and teach.
Jiddi's Patch is a shop where everyone is made to feel welcome and it provides so many of us quilt junkies with the soul satisfying therapy that we all need to keep us happy and stitching.
"Thank You" to the many wonderful girls in my classes this year; both the applique classes and the machine quilting classes. You make my role as teacher a joyful one as you are so willing to take on what I throw at you and always happy to give things a go.
I have been both amazed and inspired by some of the work you have brought in to show me that you have completed as a result of doing my classes and I can't thank you all enough because I love, "Show and Tell". Plus, it means that you are going away and utilising the skills that you have learned.
Many of you have returned time and again to my different classes and I hope that will continue and that I see you again in 2014. At Jiddi's we are planning several new classes for next year, mainly as a result of requests from girls who have been in my classes throughout this year and we would love to catch up with you again.
I would also like to thank Elaine and Louise at Express media for your support and publication of my designs and for being wonderful to work with.
I hope you all enjoy a break of some sort and some stitching or quilting that makes your heart sing.
