“In this presentation, I’ll tell you what I found easy; what I found hard; what seemed impossible; and what I think I’ve learned. And I’ll show you some quilts I’ve made during my process.I’ll talk about … • Industry standards and certifications• organic fabric and understanding differences• brands/manufacturers• Canadian sources/shops• thread • dyes and dyeing• batting

NOTE: I am hugely influenced (indeed inspired) by the work of Bridget O’Flaherty, The Sustainable Quilter. I’m not an expert. But she is. Please follow her on Instagram and Facebook and read her articles in Canadian Quilter magazine.”
