Yoko Saito Visit

Life has been very busy lately. I have been merchant at the Yoko Saito Classes
in Auckland and in Taupo and that has been an absolute treat. I have just learnt 
so much even though I didn't actually do the class projects.

Yoko is such a talented quilter, author and teacher.

She brought Satomi, her shop manager with her as translator and she is so lovely too.

They make an awesome teaching team.

We stated with a book signing at he shop. We had set up our window display especially for her. It feature her books and the quilts we had made from her design or fabrics, plus a few extra Japanese taupe quilts.

We had three classes in Auckland - two one day classes and a two class 
and then a two day class in Taupo. 

The Journal class.

Pencil Case

Two day Floral Bouquet.

Now onto some of Yoko's Show and Tell.

What a great week and I have so many amazing comments from customers who 
attended the classes. Thank you everyone for joining us.


  1. Wow, I am full of envy! :-)

  2. Yoko's subtle colour palette is beautiful Robyn.

  3. Looks like an amazing time! I know two friends who attended one class and were thrilled! looks like their backs in the front row! :-)
