you have always wanted to “sew something” but don’t know where to begin or
don’t have a sewing machine – these classes are for you! If you don't have a sewing machine, don't worry - its FREE to use one of ours for the day.
Also a great class to get you going if you have a sewing machine but it is still in its box!!! Bring yours along and we'll get you on your way.
We have Absolute Beginners classes for dressmaking and general sewing leading on to patchwork & quilting.
ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS CLASSES WILL RETURN IN JANUARY 2019
Challenge yourself and give yourself a project to get stuck into this Autumn/Winter. Imagine this stunning, large Star Sampler Quilt on your bed. Join Elaine (No.2) on the first 2 Thursdays of each month starting on Thursday 4th October. You will learn new techniques at each session and how to quilt each block as you complete it, so there’s no worry of how on earth you quilt your quilt on your regular sewing machine. Very affordable way to learn and make a quilt ~ £20 per session. Sessions will be 10.00am to 3.30pm. There will be some blocks given for homework along the way. Not suitable for absolute beginners but a great quilt project for those who know the basics in patchwork (ie. how to use a rotary cutter, board and ruler).
£20 PER SESSION (Payable on the day of each session) ~ £20 DEPOSIT SECURES YOUR PLACE ~ PLACES LIMITED TO 6 ~
CAN'T MAKE THESE DATES BUT WOULD LIKE TO DO THIS QUILT NEXT TIME AROUND!! Get in touch to put your name on our reserve list as we'll be running this one again once this course completes.
