... star turn....

If you don't know the work of our workshop leader, Jone Hallmark, you're in for a treat. 

The fab Jone Hallmark herself!

Jone has just finished leading her first five day event with us, Sketchbook Thrillers, and it's been a roller-coaster ride of creativity and innovation for everyone involved.  We had a full house of enthusiastic and multi-talented participants from all over the world and the pace of the workshop was both exhilarating and rewarding; whilst Jone pressed people to experiment outside their comfort zone, the atmosphere was in no way competitive and no-one was pressurised to work harder than they felt able.  Jone has the rare talent of being able to explain and demonstrate multifarious creative techniques whilst encouraging and inspiring with ideas and suggestions - everyone adored both her and her work and we at Les Soeurs are very much hoping that word will get out and we can bring her back next year for another adventure.

Here are a few hot off the press photos of the week in question, the work that was produced and the fun that was had after hours.  If you want to seriously push the boundaries of your stitching and textile skills in an entirely comfortable and supportive atmosphere, this is the workshop for you....

"What a wonderful week I had at your magical home with the most lovely group of women and the most gracious teacher! Thank you so, so much. Your warmth, gracious hospitality and the relaxed, fun energy you express provide the perfect ambiance for a rejuvenating and creative experience."  KL USA
