For many quilters in Sydney, Nonie Fisher played an important role in starting us on our quilting journey. She was one of the owners of "The Quilting Bee" in Gordon and via her classes introduced us to the various patchwork, applique and quilting techniques, as well as to the history of quilting.
As both a teacher and designer of quilt patterns with an historical emphasis, Nonie has been a leader in developing patchwork and quilting in Australia. Although she now lives in Victoria, Nonie has agreed to talk to us at the Seminar on 6 July 2014 at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney.
Nonie's talk is titled "Retrospective Recollections - a Personal Journey". She will talk about: "my journey, and I will bring as many of my
quilts (including some old ones relevant to my story) with me. It is a journey
that includes my involvement in groups, The Quilters' Guild of NSW from its
commencement, 'The Quilting Bee' and making quilts for my loved ones."
