She will be joining us all the way from California for a three day workshop in 2023 entitled "Finding Pride & Joy in Modern Foundation Paperpiecing" where she will be teaching this technique as we construct a Custom pattern created especially for Cambridgeshire Modern Quilt Guild.

Each day will run with a taught workshop 9.30am - 4pm. On both nights we will organise an informal dinner nearby for those that wish to join (not included in the cost) where Verushka will join you to allow you maximum time with her and the group.
