Quilting and Patchwork
Learn the traditional art of Patchwork & Quilting whilst taking your time making a lovely cushion or section towards a quilt. These also make excellent gifts and the patchwork pieces can be made from family or personal mementos - scraps from babys clothes or recycled clothes.
You can learn the art of patchwork and quilting and make a cushion or a quilt (other items can be made - ask us for what to bring). If bringing a design of their own run this by us first (via email is fine) to check what's needed and that teacher Mel is happy to help create it.
Which classes can I make this project in?: Mon evening, Tuesday morning or afternoon (fortnightly) or Thur evening Stitch Classes with Mel or 1-2-1 lessons with Mel only - our other teachers don't know how to teach patchwork so double check who the teacher of your class is
Experience: You will have needed to use a sewing machine before and made at least one item e.g. basic bag or cushion (to get to this level quickly check out our Beginner level classes).
What to bring to your class to make patchwork CUSHION - bring the same but without the cushion pad/back to make a section of quilt:
Note: All fabric needs washing and ironing before class, unless it is 100% polyester or PU/PVC/Olicloth - or the finished item will never be washed. Check fabric content and any washing/ironing instructions when purchasing fabric
We provide: sewing machine (or bring your own if you prefer), scissors, pins, chalk, tape measure etc if you don’t have your own
