Workshop with Lorena Uriarte

If you are on Instagram you would already know that I am in Negotiations to have Lorena Uriarte come too Coomera for a One Day Workshop in Early June on a SUNDAY with a choice of either of the two quilts below.



Lorena Uriarte is a Sydney-based modern quilting teacher and is also an experienced teacher of vegetarian cooking.
Modern quilting is a broad discipline which has evolved from the traditional craft practised by both English gentlewomen and American pioneers, and is now a term used by contemporary quilters to cover a wide range of styles and techniques.
Lorena’s quilting classes focus on techniques from simple to advanced, such as foundation paper piecing, applique, curved piecing and Y seams. Lorena also advises about colour theory and design principles, as well as setting up your sewing equipment as efficiently as possible.
She teaches in a number of locations around Sydney, and interstate workshops on request. A range of her quilts and quilted items, which can be made in the one-day workshops, can be seen on the gallery page. Quilting classes include both machine and hand piecing.
Lorena is a caterer and cooking teacher who  has advocated healthy and interesting food for many years. She has cooked in many contexts, from restaurants to private catering for small and large numbers. She teaches vegetarian cooking in inner Sydney and the classes can be found in the calendar.
On this website you will find Lorena’s quilting blog, free tutorials and patterns. Tutorials include techniques for her patterns and common quilting skills. You will also find the shop page where some patterns and templates will be available for sale.
Lorena is the president of the Greater Western Sydney Modern Quilt Guild and a member of the Quilters Guild of NSW.
In addition you will find her vegetarian recipes, all kitchen-ready and many of them examples from her cooking classes. Lorena has a world view of cuisine, which informs her cooking and teaching.


There are two versions of this quilt but you could make it anything you want a Great way to use up those Scraps...
Keep an eye out here soon for the date and if you are Interested Please use the Contact Form on the sidebar and I will get back too this stage the cost for the day will be around $60.00 which will include Morning Tea...Lunch and Afternoon Tea.
