I have been sewing in one form or another since about the age of eight when I was given a beautiful old singer treadle sewing machine. Through the years I made clothes for friends and family but never did I consider being a quilter or patchworker! I think I just fell in to it… I made rugs for my babies to play on on the floor and was later told they were quilts!
Over the years I have become more involved in sharing my love of all things fabric to numerous groups of people – I have taught Girl Guides, school children and adults to patchwork and to stretch themselves out of their comfort zone to try new methods.
I have now owned my own quilting business and patchwork shop for four years – I love to teach and as a shop owner I came across Judy Niemeyer Quilting and became a Certified Shop. I have continued down this path as I am passionate about this method of foundation paper piecing and teaching it, I am proud to say that I am now also a Certified Instructor.
I love to travel and would venture anywhere to teach! I live in Western Australia and plan to use my position as a Certified Instructor to travel – if you want me to teach I will find a way to get there!
Sorry, there are no classes scheduled for Leonie de Haas at this time.
