New Beginners' Course Starting April 2019                    Click to enquire
This six week course will introduce to you lots of different patchwork techniques and get you started on a beginner’s sampler quilt or table runner. It is suitable for beginners with little or no experience. You can expect to learn how to make blocks such as Log Cabin, Courthouse Steps, Shoo Fly, Sawtooth Star, Rail Fence and Crazy Patch. We will use the Quilt-As-You-Go method to quilt each block so that when you join it all together it is already quilted. Learn lots of little tips and tricks along the way to make your stitching the best it can be. Limited places so book early!
