Students explore traditional and modern patchwork techniques – both piecing and applique using hand and/or machine sewing in a very friendly, non- judgemental environment. Students generally work on their own projects with assistance & advice given as needed along the way, but we do work on class projects at times.
High level skills are not a prerequisite for success! Students only need to be able to thread a needle, use scissors and have an interest in learning the skills of patchwork and quilting.
Starting Equipment: hand sewing needles, threads (100% cotton), quilters pins, fabric and paper scissors, 100% cotton patchwork fabric, pen and paper.
We do have basic sewing machines to use in classes if you are starting out & don’t have one of your own. We also have quilting rulers, cutting mats, rotary cutters etc for use in the classes.
The tutor for this class is Penny Howard. Click here to find out more about Penny.
