Telene is an avid quilter, designer and free motion quilt teacher from Gauteng, South Africa. She is a Handi Quilter International Ambassador and a South African Quilters Guild Accredited Quilt Teacher. Telene has won numerous prizes for her quilts and attained Master Quilter Status from the SAQG. She has proudly had quilts on display internationally as well.
Telene’s mother taught her to sew when she was young and her obsession for quilting stems from her passion for sewing. She completed a B Tech in Interior Architecture and during her studies, she became involved in her parents’ sewing machine dealership where she taught a variety of basic sewing lessons. During her time in the corporate world (2002 – 2010) as an Interior Architect, she started quilting. In January 2011 she began teaching basic quilting classes which developed into quilting for clients, specializing in custom free motion quilting. She has taught at several local as well as international events and is currently teaching virtual classes online from her home.
Her love for design showed with the creation of her own line of whole cloth quilt patterns for free motion quilters. Telene’s quilt designs are available in digital format for computer aided quilters with the masterful digitizing of Mary Beth Krapil.
