My Journey as a Quiltmaker

Duration: 1 hour
In this lecture/trunkshow, Renske shares her personal journey as a quiltmaker. From simple beginnings, Renske's love of quilting has evolved into a career as an awarding-winning quilt artist and sought-after teacher. Her trunkshow includes a variety of quilts and wallhangings that showcase her skills and interests: many appliqued quilts will be featured, as they are her passion.

Born in Friesland, north of Holland, Renske's love of quilting has taken her across Canada, through the US, and even to Japan. But she has never forgotten her farm girl roots! Her down-to-earth and practical approach to quilting is punctuated with humour, and her obvious love for what she does makes her an engaging speaker.
