Recognised for her creative, artistic and innovative approaches to quilting, Julie Haddrick is an award winning and accomplished textile artist, quilt and pattern designer, teacher and quilt judge. Trained in Visual Arts, Julie’s 35 years of High School Art, Craft and Design teaching concluded when adult teaching and quilting overtook her time. Quilters were so appreciative, rewarding and they all loved fabric,(with the only ‘F’ words being friends, fabric and fun).
Julie creates from an inner desire to express herself and her classes nurture and develop students’ journey in creative expression. A generous teacher, Julie teaches ‘thinking’ as well as techniques of the ‘doing’. Her teaching resources are renowned and she provides extensive handouts to support theory or techniques that underpin her diverse range of quilting workshops.
In recognition of contributions made to the Australian quilting industry Julie was awarded the 2018 Rajah Award. She has works held in private collections in Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide and Melbourne, and her quilts have been awarded many prizes throughout her 20 year career. Julie teaches in Australia, New Zealand, and recently USA and Japan and thus embraces the opportunity to develop personalised classes that share current trends and her latest ideas.
