Hello, I’m Rose Lewis, & I absolutely love teaching my many different & varied quilting techniques to lovely people just like yourself, all around the world.
I love helping students explore & develop their own personal inner talents & passions that have often been hidden within them, often unknown to them. I like to instil an awareness & awaken them into a new way of looking at what they’re creating. I bring with me a huge amount of contiguous enthusiasm, creativeness & inspiration.
I first started sewing on my mother’s treadle sewing machine many years ago. I went on to sew my clothes, then my children’s clothes, curtains, hemming & mending. In approx 1984 patchwork came to Australia, so a new journey begun. I’ve sewn many techniques over the years, but I specialise in applique that looks like needleturn but is all sewn on the sewing machine, trapunto, thread painting, fabric painting & other brilliant techniques.
I’ve won many awards & ribbons over the years and been up in the running for Best of Australia several times, I’ve taught in-person classes in many parts of Australia, I written for one of the biggest quilting magazines in the UK, having my own regular pages as well as doing some feature articles for quite a while. I’ve also been featured in many quilting & country style magazines & I’ve been interviewed live on ABC country radio several times. I’ve been guest artist & speaker at many quilting shows & events and also written several books….and the list keeps growing.
I love teaching & inspiring people just like yourself, with my creativeness, inspiration & enthusiasm. So, come & join me on this journey of learning with me through on-line classes, even if you’re a beginner & you’ll feel like I’m sitting right beside you in your sewing room. Be inspired, Be creative.
