Examples of Stupendour

In the workshop, you will learn to embellish fabric using decorative stitches, various threads, cord, yarn, beads, and angel hair.

Instructor: Gwynn LePoidevin

Some of you know me from the Christmas Fair and some of you know me from the October Homewood Retreat. My name is Gwynn LePoidevin and I have been quilting for 30 years. I was born and raised in Victoria and when the last of my children finished school, we went to the interior for 16 years. Before we left, I bought a small sewing machine and took 1 quilting class. I still have the first piece I ever made. That piece was an arched wall hanging with some appliqué on it. The teacher had a sample that had stippling with leaves on it. When I was finished the piece, I did the same stippling and leaves as she had done and took it in to show her not realizing that this was not something a beginner would do. From then on, I was hooked. Everything I learned increased my love of quilting and teaching this art.

Classes I have taught include appliqué, paper piecing, wallet making, stippling, hand quilting and freehand quilting and the art of thread work quilting. I look forward to seeing you at the Stupendous Stitching Class in April 2024.
