A three part workshop covering all aspects of patchwork quilting and providing the support to complete a quilt by the end of the course.

Session 2: Continuation of the project, preparation of the wadding and backing, tacking together, selection of the quilting design, beginning of quilting

Session 3: Finishing off quilting and any troubleshooting, edging and the removal of the tacking.

Scissors, needles, pins and thread will be provided whilst in class. A small selection of fabric will be available but it is best if you bring some of your own in colours and patterns that you like. Wadding to the size that you require can be bought during the workshop.

Participants should attend all three workshops and complete tasks in between in their own time.

Fee: £55 (£45 if you book early*) & a small amount towards materials payable during workshop.
