Trunk show with Melanie MacDonald of Sewial Ambition

Join us at Watergirl Quilt Co. as Melanie MacDonald of Sewial Ambition and one of the 7 certified BeColourful instructors in the world as she shows some of her beautiful BeColourful projects, quilted garments and more.

Some of Melanie's quilted garments incorporate both the garment and BeColourful techniques. 

Melanie has an excellent eye for colours and combinations!  

Melanie has taught a few classes with Watergirl Quilt Co. and is scheduled for more in the coming year.  We will be offering both classes for specific projects and "Finishing Clinics" - where you can bring your own BeColourful project, quilted garment and anything else you think she might be able to guide you.

NOTE:  If you are interested there is a "Finishing Clinic" with Melanie the morning of the trunk show.

Materials Included: none
Instructor: Melanie MacDonald
Instructor Bio: After admiring quilt magazines in grocery stores for years, Melanie finally worked up the courage to make her first one in 1998. She had a borrowed sewing machine and absolutely no knowledge of quilting, whatsoever. The results were predictably disastrous, yet she was completely and immediately hooked. In the twenty-five years since she has become an extremely adept and ambitious quilter, always willing and excited to try new techniques and tools. What started as a hobby has turned into a lifelong passion. Melanie is always making quilts, talking about quilts, admiring quilts, looking at patterns, petting fabric, going to quilt shows, or packing to go on retreats with friends who are equally obsessed passionate about quilting. There is only one thing Melanie enjoys as much as quilting and that is encouraging others in their pursuit of the art. As a former corporate workshop facilitator, Melanie strives to create a learning atmosphere that is welcoming, fun, and encouraging. She wants all students to leave her courses feeling empowered and proud of their efforts. While she enjoys teaching all forms of quilting, her favourite by far is paper piecing the BeColourful way. She saw her first BeColourful quilt online in 2011 and became determined to one day make them all! She has attended several of Jacqueline?s courses and is extremely proud and honoured to be one of 7 Authorized BeColourful Teachers in the world and one of 3 in Canada. Melanie and her dog, Bobbin, live in Ottawa, Ontario. Follow her on Instagram at Sewcial_ambition
