This is an additional retreat for beginner ruler quilters.

These dates have been added to allow new quilters to learn how to quilt with rulers. The dates of the original retreat stay the same for those who have put their names and deposits down. 

The original group on the 21st may to 25th May 2025 will focus on introducing free motion quilting with ruler work and quilt design. 

This second group on Monday 26th to Thursday 29th May 2025 will be for four days only and will focus on beginner to intermediate quilting with Westalee Rulers.

When and where??  

Monday 26th May 10am through to Thursday 29th May 4pm 2025

The classes are at the Recreation room Lakes Entrance RSL.

Lakes Entrance RSL 

221 Esplanade Vic 3909

Monday to Wednesday Anita will be providing tuition 10 am to 4 pm.  Feel free to use the room to keep sewing into the evening until 9pm.

Thursday is free day, no tuition fee but I will still be around, and you have access to the Rec room to keep working until 4pm, when we all have to vacate


Anyone from a beginner to an experienced quilter will gain knowledge and practical help for quilting with Westalee Design rulers.


Beginners will start off on the Table runner and placemats pattern so that they can learn all the basic skills for successful Westalee Design ruler quilting. Beginners will need to purchase the starter set and other items they need for approximately $250.

Students who have already done this can be completing the rest of the Skill Builder patterns.

The class requirements will be sent to you by the end of February to allow plenty of time to prepare. 

Beginners will be spending approximately $250 on Westalee templates to get started on their quilting with rulers journey and the Table Runner pattern.


Rooms are available at the Lakes Entrance RSL and you need to call to reserve your chosen room. I do not do this for you, it is up to you to contact them for the accommodation if you need it. This is not included in the price of the Quilting week.

We have 20 rooms on hold for us, but you need to call to book them when you have booked into the course. Some people choose to stay the night before and the night after the retreat. Just be sure to sort that out when you call to book.
