About the event


This workshop is a great introduction to landscapes, using a variety of techniques and methods.    You will learn how to compose a small simple landscape using leftover scraps of fabric, embroidery floss and other materials and supplies found in your  sewing room.    ** Great for beginners as well as seasoned stitchers who love handwork!   Susan Jensen is an accomplished quilter, pattern designer and fibre artist. She takes inspiration from the beauty in nature, and loves to photograph the waters, woodlands, and gardens in her home province of British Columbia.

Sue speaks and teaches in quilt shops and guild meetings, at trade shows and retreats, and in her studio in Maple Ridge, BC.
