Wendy has been sewing since she sat beside her grandmother when she was very young. She has a passion for fabric, colour and making something that is of practical use. Over the years she has tried every kind of patch work and quilting and made hundreds of quilts. Wendy is currently conveyor of Kapiti Quilting, a local quilting club which promotes and develops interest and skill in all levels of patchwork and quilting. Wendy lives in Waikanae Beach, after having spent several years living in Australia. While there she worked and taught in a Quilting shop, the perfect job!  The beginners class concentrates on learning all the basics and making a very nice quilt in the process. The intermediate level quilt assumes some experience and knowledge of cutting, piecing and general fabric handling.  Wendy’s classes are relaxed and practical, there are no quilt police here!
