Beginners Patchwork - 1 day

If you have ever wondered about the difference between patchwork and quilts, or how quilts are made and fancied having a go, then this one day workshop is for you! We will take you through each step of patchwork and quilt making and you will spend the day making your own mini quilt. You will learn how to cut squares of fabric with a rotary cutter, how to fit and sew them together to make a patchwork top (and how important an iron is in quilt making!). You will then add wadding and backing fabric to your patchwork top, and use a sewing machine to learn some basic quilting. You will then finish your mini quilt with a border.

All materials, equipment and sewing machines are provided for your use on the day, as well as plentiful tea and coffee.

There will be a break for lunch so you can bring a packed lunch, or pop into the town for a breath of fresh air.

Click here to go to our shop where you will find patchwork tools and fat quarter fabrics.
