Beginners Patchwork - 4 week course

If you have ever wondered about the difference between patchwork and quilts, or how quilts are made and fancied having a go, then this 4 week introductory course is for you! We will take you through each step of patchwork and quilt making. 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. Once all that's done, we'll move on to half square triangles and other patterns so you'll feel really confident about tackling a bigger project

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