Inspired Needleworks will be attending The Jane Austen Festival in Canberra 21-23rd April.
We are presenting our talk ‘Jane Austen’s Quilt – The History and the Making’ three times over the three days. We will take our attendees on our journey through the research undertaken to recreate a replica quilt of our own. They will hear about a passion to unlock the quilt’s story from the fabrics the Austen’s used to the techniques employed to achieve a quilt which is a masterpiece in design and complexity.
We also will take this opportunity to take part in the activities of all things Austen. From breakfast with the Bennets to a Regency Ball or two. Food, fashion, regency ettiquette and of course Jane’s literary efforts. It will be a perfectly ‘agreeable’ weekend.
