This class takes a longer look at the art of patchwork and quilting, fortnightly, through the construction of patchwork blocks using classic techniques. This course will include how to assemble the blocks into a throw, lap quilt, table runner or a double bed sized quilt.
You will be given colour copies of patterns of the blocks (payable to the tutor £1 per session). It is difficult to state exactly how much fabric you will need, as it depends on how many blocks you make. The fabric is best bought at the first class as Diane or Susan will teach you about colour, tone and shade. Count on at least eight fat quarters or 2 metres of fabric and 2m for the background with an extra 1m later in the session for the sashing and border. Please bring a general sewing kit: small sharp pointed scissors, pins and a pad and paper to take notes. Be prepared to do sewing homework. If these classes fill up we may open up further classes so please ask.

This is for those who can already do patchwork and quilting and are familiar with all the common blocks and quilting techniques. This class will teach more advanced techniques, share tips and will include curves and blocks that give secondary designs. Count on 8FQs and 2m of background fabric. Every session there will be colour copies of the patterns taught (£1 payable to the tutor). We have class haberdashery including rotary cutters and mats.

This group is for people who want to meet up and sew in a creative environment with an expert tutor on hand and an open shop for supplies! These groups were born from previous or current students of classes who want to carry on quilting on their own projects and get on top of their unfinished projects. Come along and finish your own projects, go back over previous blocks or techniques with help or troubleshoot your weak points. There will also be a teaching curriculum in place that Diane will run which you can opt in/out when and if you choose.
