About

Recently appointed by Handi Quilter  as their newest International Ambassador, Telene will also be the Keynote Presenter at the Handi Quilter Academy 2019  in Utah, USA.   Telene lives in Krugersdorp, Gauteng, South Africa. She is an amazing quilter, teacher and artist. She is an SAQG (South African Quilters Guild) Accredited Quilt Teacher after successfully completing the Teachers Accreditation Course.  Telene has won numerous prizes for her quilts and attained Master Quilter Status from the SAQG. She has proudly had a quilt juried into the IQA Houston Quilt Show 2016 where it was displayed in the exhibition.   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 also taught at IQCA and other quilt groups in her area. In October 2014, she opened a quilting shop, Lady Jane Quilting, from where she teaches quilt related workshops on a weekly basis.   She was appointed by BERNINA RSA as one of their Global BERNINA Long-Arm Quilt Ambassadors, 2016 - 2018. She subsequently taught at  the 19th South African National Quilt Festival, Port Elizabeth.  She made her international teaching debut in November 2017 where she shared her passion in a series of classes at a quilt shop in Texas, USA. September 2018 will be Telene’s fifth appearance as a teacher at the annual Handi Quilter Machine Quilters Boot Camp, South  Africa. Free motion quilting is Telene’s absolute passion, and she is a firm believer that everybody can quilt. Her goal is to inspire students to simply try, as she knows they will never look back!
