Introduction to Quilting – Quilting Techniques Workshop

This quilting course is perfect for those wanting to learn the basics of the 4 essential quilting techniques covered over four separate sessions.

The sessions will run over four weeks covering all four techniques or you can join for just the sessions you want to learn.

The four techniques are: Paper Piecing, Confetti Quilting, Log Cabin, and Applique Design.

Each technique is quick, easy and great for using up your stash or scrap fabric. You may decide to use the design as an individual pieces for a scattered cushion or tote bag. Alternatively, you may decide to follow a colour scheme and use these pieces to create a large quilt repeating all or some of the designs.

Written instructions, requirements and measurements will be provided.

I have sewing machines available for use during the sessions, 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 each 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!

This course will run over four weeks, made up of four, 3 hour sessions, or if you only want to attend some of the sessions, they are £45 each.
