Judi Schon is a quilter from Auckland. Judi is an award winning long-arm quilter, and runs a small business, Quiltsmith, quilting other people's quilts. Judi is also this year's Convener for the Festival of Quilts, a big job, and I was interested in finding out more about how you go about organising a big quilting event like this. Judi generously agreed to be interviewed and now I can share this interview with you. Thanks Judi!
This is Judi's quilt, which we discuss in the interview. It's called Inside Out, and is made from a design by Kati Spencer that was in the MQU Mag, Fall 2012.
Whoops, during the interview I get the dates of the upcoming Symposiums wrong. Here's the correct dates and locations, and links for those that have web pages running:
2015 - Palmerston North
2017 - Christchurch
2019 - Auckland
It's a howling gale here today, perfect weather for staying inside and putting some stitches in cloth. How's your weekend treating you? I hope you have a great one, wherever you are and whatever you're doing.
