Here is a little about Jen Kingwell if you do not know her yet!!

JEN KINGWELL

Jen has been lucky in her life to have had two wonderful careers. Her first love was midwifery and she felt honoured to be included in life’s most precious every day miracles. She doesn’t know where her love of fabrics came from, her mother was not a sewer but she does know she has always been fascinated by colour and pattern. Like many she tried different crafts and stumbled into quilting over 30 years ago and there she has remained. An interest became an obsession which then became her career, including teaching and designing. She has owned quilt stores for 15 years and currently owns Amitie Textiles in Melbourne Australia www.amitie.com.auand Instagram @amitie_textiles. The store offers an eclectic mix of fabrics including Japanese, Liberty of London, linens from Europe, french toiles and a wide collection of patchwork fabrics of course including Moda!!

She describes herself as a traditional quilter with a modern twist. Loves scrappy quilts and the more fabrics she can use in a single project the happier she is. In her perfect world she would hand stitch everything but with today’s busy lifestyle she does machine piece as well. Hand appliqué and quilting are among her favorite pastimes.

Jen Kingwell is married to Richard and has 3 fabulous daughters Meg, Abby and Lucy who are by far her very best designs.

Sunday, May 10th Workshop – Cotter

Cotter

The newest edition by Jen Kingwell to the Tempters Range. Cotter has been designed to be jelly roll friendly utilizing a dominant print to highlight the geometric gradient of the finished quilt. This single block Acrylic Template set includes simple instructions on how to complete this block and can be made to any size.

Jen had made the original quilt specific to her released fabric range Remix to include all ‘lollies’ prints with a few highlights of her bold ‘hero’ prints thrown in the mix. Jen has been clever with her straight forward piecing executed in a soft incline, making this quilt eye catching in any finished size!

A great way to utilize scrappy prints in the stash or cut into a complete range to start something new.

This is a hand taught class but if you wish to machine piece, bring along your machine and rotary cutting equipment.

Monday May 11th Quilting Workshop – Psychedelic

Psychedelia

Jen Kingwell’s love of scrappy quilts and curved hand piecing come together in this wild 60’s inspired BOM program.

12 x 18” blocks designed to be cushions with the option of piecing them together for one groovy quilt, it is an ode to Beatlemania, flower power and the psychedelic art movement!

Acrylic templates and fabric, these marvelous designs will both challenge and delight the hand & machine sewers alike. A great program to be involved in for extra classes and skills to be taught to participants.

This is a hand taught class but if you wish to machine piece, bring along your machine and rotary cutting equipment.

Tuesday May 12th Workshop – Something New – Tempter with Fabrics (you will be testing a new design for Jen Kingwell – I specifically asked for this…a mystery)

Tempters are a fantastic way to get creative in a measured and precise way for advanced quilters and beginners alike. In this class Jen will be releasing ‘Something New’ to introduce and share the tips and tricks of using acrylic templates for hand piecing.

‘Tempters’ are a single block acrylic template set including instructions on how to complete the finished block. Match with other Tempter blocks or repeated to make a finished quilt or runner of any size. This class will endeavour to confidently tempt the participant to try something new and improve their skills in colour choices, Y seams and more! This is a hand taught class but if you wish to machine piece bring along your machine and rotary cutting equipment.
