Note from Siska:-

I love to celebrate colour and light in fabric, especially batiks to produce designs that I find beautiful, evoke emotion and give me great delight. I am passionate about the feeling and love I get from sharing my special tips and tricks while guiding students, so they can produce stunning results using the Quiltworx techniques and patterns.

Here’s what some of my previous clients have to say about the retreat:

Jan Ryan’s story:

“I am not a seasoned traveler, but right from the start I thought it was a trip I could do. There was lots of important information, constant communication and feedback, a small like-minded group, so I felt confident to travel on my own”

Joyce Voigt’s story:

“I have been privileged to meet you Jacky and all your staff and artists to whom we have had contact. You have ensured that we have been catered for in all possible areas and times. Your thoughtfulness and caring has been appreciated.”

Robyn Cavanagh’s story:

“Thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of the people. Enjoyed experiencing the cultural outing and loved the Batik painting day. The companionship of the ladies was fabulous and sewing by the sea will be an unforgettable experience. Thank you.”

Cathryn Gaskell’s story:

I had a magic time with Jacky this year. Everything about her tours I just loved, so much so that I’m planning one for next year. Cathryn
