Island Batik Ambassador 2023

You may have seen my post over on Instagram or Facebook, but I'm pleased to announce that I am an Island Batik Ambassador again in 2023.

I had such a fun year (2022) working with Island Batik, their beautiful fabrics as well as industry partners, that I applied again. 

I absolutely enjoyed working my way through the monthly challenges which was my main motivation for joining again. I got to work on projects and make quilts that were on my bucket-list, but realistically, I'd probably never tackle (hello New York Beauty and Lone Star quilts).

My fellow 2023 Ambassadors are listed below along with links to their blogs. Some are returning ambassadors and there are many new quilters who've joined the team.

Join us for a year of challenges, giveaways and lots of fun!

  1. Thanks for the links for the 2023 ambassadors. I’ll enjoy having a read.

  2. Congratulations on receiving another year of ambassadorship (?) with Island Batiks. I actually started the application process and was totally intimidated by all the requirements! So I know all the commitment and time that goes into it! Well done!

  3. I saw you had been chosen again. Enjoy another year of challenges and beautiful fabrics. Such a shame that there are no stockists here in NZ.

  4. Congrats... looking forward to seeing what you make...

  5. Congratulations, Anorina! Other than you, I don't know of these Island Batik Ambassadors. I hope you have a great year with your challenges and projects.

  6. Congratulations, Anorina!! You are going to be SEW busy this year!
