GourmetQuilter Afloat! Quilting Tips & Techniques 136

This video takes you on a tour through my temporary floating studio! We are on a canal boat in the UK, moored in the London area and getting organised to do some more tutorials.

  2. Looks like you’re having a great time on the canal boat. Is the boat yours or can they be rented?

  3. What a neat craft space! Look forward to seeing your “floating tutorials!” From the video, it seems you are surrounded by beautiful scenery.

    How adventurous. Are you the “Lock”person? “Sleeping Weasel” what a quaint name for a water vessel. So looking forward to your next tutorial.

    HI Susan, I loved your video showing the canalboat, and the serenity of the river. Idyllic! The boat was much longer than I expected (I’ve never been on a canalboat) so it must be interesting getting accustomed to living and working within a more confined space than back at home. Hope Royden is also enjoying life on the water. Are you moored in one place for long, or are you moving along the river every few days? Take care. Janet

    • Hi Janet, yes it is interesting confining myself to the boat space! and Royden is living in the studio! We have a permanent mooring but occasionally move around, but if we want electricity we need to be at the mooring as the boat runs with 12volt batteries when we are away.

    Lovely! Your tutorials are wonderful. I look forward to seeing your canal inspired creations.

    I am currently finishing a tee-shirt quilt using your join as you go method. It is working beautifully on my Featherweight machine. I’m so grateful to you for sharing your work with us.

    Have a lovely holiday!

  10. I love your blog! Greatly enjoyed your video on the canal boat!
