Beginner’s Patchwork

Different fabrics and tools for patchworkingHave you often looked at quilts on line and in books and wondered where to start? Well, this is the class for you.  In this one day workshop we take the mystery out of ‘modern’ patchwork using a sewing machine and hopefully kick start your creative side to produce easy but effective patchwork items (quilts/table runners/cushions) for all your friends and family.  A full day packed with tips and inspiration that will have you going home with a small project and big ideas.

The topics we aim to cover in this lesson

Fabric Terminology

Handling your fabric

Rotary Cutting – Equipment and use

Basic Sewing Machine Use

Achieving an accurate 1/4” seam


Nine Patch Blocks

Easy triangle Blocks

Using the blocks you create we will make a simple table runner

Materials Needed:

We have sewing machines for you to use but if you would like to bring your own please advise us at the time of booking. If bringing your own machine, a 1/4” foot would be useful, but not essential. You will also need to bring along 4 coordinating cotton fabrics these will need to be 50cm X 60cm (fat quarters) and a thread in a colour that blends with all your fabrics.

We will supply Batting (wadding) to complete your table runner
