  1. Katrina
    As I live on the South Coast and am unable to attend you workshops but would dearly love to start making at least one of your Jane Austen Quilt Collection quilts.
    Are you able to tell me where the patterns are available if at all or would I have to attend one of your classes
    Thanks heaps, love your work

  2. Hi Katrina I also would love to buy your pattern for Pemberley as I am unable to attend your classes.Love the quilts you are very talented.Kind regards Helen

  3. Hello Katrina, I was admiring your quilt at Country pickin's Dural, then saw another amazing quilt at Quiltsmith also yours! Is it possible to buy the patterns without attending classes? Best wishes Ann

  4. Hi Katrina, I would be interested in purchasing the pattern for your quilt Pemberley, is it available?

  5. Hi everyone
    The Jane Austen quilts are workshop quilts.
    Even if you have to travel, it's worth making the effort to do one of Katrina's workshops.
    So enjoyable and you learn sooo much.
    Rose ( a Katrina fan)

  6. How experienced do you need to be to do a class with Katrina?

  7. Hi ladies,

    Thank you for our enquiries. All of my Jane Austen Quilt Collection quilts are taught by myself in the workshops I conduct in different shops around Sydney and further afield. This is my only source of income and I do not sell these patterns. I have taught total beginners these quilts but some experience is helpful as the quilts are large and quite involved. Please email me if you wish to know further details: kat.had@bigpond.com.

  8. Hi Katrina, I just found your beautiful Jane Austen Quilts. I hope someday you come to the Netherlands and give a quiltweek or weekend to teach a few Dutch lady's one of your beautiful patterns. Can't deside wich one is my favorite, they are all stunning!

    1. Thank you for your lovely comments. I would love to teach in The Netherlands one day. Who knows what the future holds?
