About Annabel


I am an Aussie mum, author and designer living in rural Virginia. I own Little Pincushion Studio, a sweet little space where I teach many little sewing pixies everything they need to know to go forth and conquer the world of sewing and creating. When I am not teaching, I am busy coming up with a million and one projects for my kids sewing classes and designing quilt fabric for Windham Fabrics.

I offer step-by-step video classes through Creativebug — an online subscription site. They have hundreds of classes in their library, making it very likely that you will find something for all the creative folks in your family, big and small. 

The Doodle Quilt Workshop

Date: Friday, September 20, 2019, 10:00am-4:00pm
Location: Kenton Historic Firehouse, 8105 N Brandon Ave, Portland, OR
Cost: $75


Class Description:

This workshop is all about letting go and expressing your color personality through the use of solids. Participants will start by creating a doodle - They will be given 3 opportunities to make the doodle and will then work with their favorite. 

We will then focus on color choice and careful tracing and cutting to create the appliqué shapes.

As the day goes on, participants will be encouraged to layer shapes on shapes to explore color overlay and to create interesting shapes.

Class will then continue with the appliqué sewing and quilting to finish.
