  1. Hi Mary – I’d love to come along, but our borders here in Australia remain closed. Perhaps next year?


    1. A block of rooms has been reserved at the DoubleTree. There are several other hotels close-by. The link to book rooms at the DoubleTree should be active. The class is limited to 12.


  2. What fabulous news, Mary – You and Helen are a great team! The atmosphere was so friendly, and what I learned and applied to my sewing is invaluable. Truly a great experience!


    1. Thanks for watching the trim class. The feedback Claire and I received was very enthusiastic and there is another one planned for September. I’m working on some new variations so it won’t be a repeat of the last one.
