It's a goofy picture, but it's us!
Some people in life strongly influence the path that you take more than others.
Yvonne Roberts is definitely one person who has made a difference in my life. She's a New Zealand quilt hero. There are scores of quilters in this country who've learned their craft in her classes.
Yvonne has been a teacher, tutor, mentor, and all-round helpful person both professionally and personally.
This is the woman that started me off as a tutor, giving me one of her classes in it's original form to work off, and learn from. Yvonne entrusted me with my first mini-symposium job at the P41 Mini Symposium in Picton 2008.
Yvonne has done her part for the industry, influencing and affecting many quilters in a positive way. Without Yvonne's encouragement and direction, I doubt I'd be tutoring today. (Just wanted to take a moment to give credit where credit is due.)
THANK YOU YVONNE!
