"I am so excited with my first Fresh Beginnings quilt. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us. I am thinking about making another one."

Marnelke C


After ten fabulous years of teaching contemporary quiltmaking in Perth, Western Australia, I’m thrilled to be living and sharing with students in southern Tasmania.

I’m constantly expanding my own skills and gathering fresh, inspiring material to share with students. Teaching others and enabling them to create beautiful work gives me enormous satisfaction.

I use my ‘class sample quilts’ to simply ‘sew the seed’ and demonstrate what is possible. I encourage students to discover their own creativity, to develop their own style and to make individual pieces as their confidence grows.


It was an absolute pleasure to show my work in both these exhibitions:

SALVAGE/SELVEDGE EXHIBITION 2014 was held at the Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery in Fremantle WA where a large selection of beautiful, functional quilts and themed textiles were exhibited over two weeks in May/June 2014.  A fundraiser for the School of St Yared in Ethiopia.

‘A BEX AND A GOOD LIE DOWN’ Log Cabin design, cotton retro floral print/ticking, machine quilted. Made for Salvage Selvedge Exhibition 2014.  Sold at silent auction.

‘WELCOME IN’ Log Cabin design, vintage Japanese kimonos/silk linings, machine quilted. Made for Salvage Selvedge Exhibition 2014. Sold at live auction.

OUT OF HAND EXHIBITION 2017 was held at Long Gallery Salamanca Arts Centre in Hobart by Stitching and Beyond, Tasmania – a diverse collective of textile and fibre artists.
