Online Monkie-Trunk Show - Quilting & Improvised Quilting


Since meeting some seven-odd years ago, quilters Nicholas Ball and Trudi Wood have remained firm friends.


From the first quilt Trudi ever long-armed for Nicholas, to the stunning cover star of his book, their quilting relationship has produced some truly magical quilts. Whilst Nicholas prefers a dense, organic quilting treatment, Trudi’s own quilting style is quite different, with stunning feathers and swirls. Join us for an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at a selection of quilts from these two quilting connoisseurs. You’ll get to see never-before-seen images of some of the quilts from Nicholas’s book Inspiring Improv as he shares the stories behind their inspiration and construction. Learn how Trudi collaborated with Nicholas to quilt the quilts as she talks about the secrets behind the stitches. Be inspired as Trudi explains how to get the most from your quilting and shares some of her spectacular work. This first ever Monkie-Trunk Show promises to be a real eye-opener and will reveal a side of these quilters’ quilts that is rarely seen.


What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

The inaugural Monkie-Trunk Show will tell you the backstory behind some of the quilts produced by Nicholas Ball and Trudi Wood. Whilst you’ll learn lots about how each one was made and quilted, as well as learning about the relationship between quilt-piecer and quilter, there isn’t a specific teaching element to the show and you won’t be expected to do any sewing yourself. This is very much a 'settle-in-with-a-nice-drink-and-listen' type of evening; a front row seat to the Monkie-Trunk Show from the comfort of your very own home thanks to the wonders of modern technology and the Zoom platform - we very much hope we'll be able to welcome you along!...

A percentage of profits from this inaugural Trunk Show will be donated to a charity chosen jointly by Trudi & Nicholas, namely The Rainbow Trust a charity that helps families with terminally ill children:-

 “Never alone. We provide bespoke support for families who have a child with a serious illness. We offer the whole family support, regardless of diagnosis and are there for as long as a family needs us.”

Tickets for this Online Monkie-Trunk Show (via the Zoom platform) will be limited and allocated on a first-come/first-served basis! The ticket price of £15.00 is based on ONE person attending this broadcast.
