Introduction to Quilting – Quilting Techniques Workshop – Stain Glass Quilting

5 February 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


In this workshop you will use your sewing skills to create a beautiful work of fabric art. You will need basic machine sewing skills to complete the project.
You will be working with a variety of fabrics, piecing together your design, and creating a stained glass effect with the fabrics. A pattern will be provided to you on the day of the workshop. This is a great opportunity to have fun and get creative with fabrics.

This course is made up two, 3 hour sessions running on 05/02 & 12/02.

We recommend starting with one of the three designs; elephant, turtle or landscape. When deciding which design to create, take into account the colour scheme you have in mind. When you have made your decision, bring the fabric of the appropriate colour to complete your project. Whether you choose an elephant, turtle, or landscape design, you’ll need to make sure you have the right coloured fabric to make it come to life.

The bias tape that you select will be based on your colour scheme. Gold or Black bias tape.

Materials required for this course:

  • 1 x 14” top fabric
  • 1 x 14” back fabric
  • 1 x 14” wadding
  • Clover Quick Bias Tape in Black or Gold – 6mm x 10m obtainable from Amazon.
  • Heat & Bond
  • Variety of Fabrics
  • Spray Starch from the supermarket
  • 505 Adhesive from Amazon

Your final design can be used to create a cushion cover, part of a tote bag or just simply framed as a personalised gift.

I have sewing machines available for use during the session, but if you do have your own sewing machine, I would recommend you bring it along so that you can become more and more confident in using your machines features.

We will break about half way through the session for refreshments, as sewing is thirsty work for mind and body therefore it’s only natural that there will be plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep us going!

Class Length: Two, 3 hour sessions

Max in a class: 5

Price: £90
