Louise Hamilton – My Quilting Journey in Full Colour
Louise was raised in Tavistock and recently moved to Mitchell following her marriage to Steve Eckert. She comes from a background of quilters and as a child she enjoyed those made from previous generations. While raising her 2 children Louise found that the art of quilting was and is therapy. She says it has calmed her in life’s storms. During her 25 years of quilting Louise explored many types of quilting including hand quilting, hand tying, domestic machine quilting and now long arm quilting.
Since retiring from Dental Hygiene, she has enjoyed long arm quilting full time. I love to teach and spread the joy of quilting. Sincethe world was locked at home, she has spent a lot of time using scraps and stash. Crumb piecing has been the focus of the last twoyears. She is happy to help share ideas for how the small pieces can sing together!
Her own business is called “Purple Rooster Quilting”. Louise will generously share her learning experiences with us as shebelieves that “we are all here on earth to share”.
