Gwen Marston in Australia!

In 2009, I posted this about Gwen Marston. I started by saying:

"I first read about Gwen Marston's quilts back in the mid 1990s, through a series of articles she wrote in Lady's Circle Patchwork Quilts. Actually, it was two series - one called 'Quilting it Your Way' and the other called 'Folk Art Applique'. Both were equally interesting to me."

Over the years, I have avidly collected Gwen's books and followed everything about her quilts. I longed to take a class with her.

Now she's coming to teach in Australia in 2013!

Of course, I will be there and you can, too.

Gwen will be teaching at the following quilt stores:

103A Gardenvale Road
Gardenvale Victoria

Phone: 03 9596 7225

29 David Street
Toowoomba Queensland
Phone: 07 4633 4748

Building 4, Quattro Corporate
4 Daydream Street
Warriewood NSW
Phone: 02 9997 4661

75 Nelson Street
Annandale, NSW
Phone: 02 9550 4947

 And as if that wouldn't be enough, Gwen will also be presenting a lecture
in Sydney in the evening of 11 July,
 sponsored by The Cottage Quiltworks and Quiltsmith.

Don't miss this opportunity to take a class with Gwen - contact one of the shops for class details. Gwen's never been to Australia before and I'm hyperventilating with excitement here!


  1. Great fun ..... it seems Gwen is not going to Sisters this year.... lots of new things for her in the year to come.

  2. I've taaken a class with her here in Michigan and it was big fun and I love the resulting project (which she really allows to be your own). Also enjoyed the exhibit of her work at the AQS Show here in Grand Rapids last August. I think my Sydney friends will get a kick out of her.

  3. I've already booked at Cottage Quiltworks.
    Thanks for the info - can't wait!
