Have you always fancied trying you hand at patchwork quilting? Want to make your own works of art in fabric? Look no further than the Sew Confident Quilting for Beginners class!

WARNING - QUILTING IS VERY ADDICTIVE AND YOU WILL NEVER WANT TO TAKE UP ANY OTHER HOBBYS EVER AGAIN!

With our fabulous tutor Jo you will make a 40.5" x 55" quilt. Perfect as a new baby present or for yourself to keep you cosy on the couch in winter. Jo is a machine and hand quilt enthusiast who studied illustration and print making. Her quilts are incredible!

You will learn all about the different tools, cutting techniques, different layouts, pressing techniques and how to line everything up and sew it perfectly, and loads more! This quilt is made using the sewing machine but some hand finishing techniques are also included.

Some prior sewing experience necessary. You only need very basic sewing skills, if you are unsure get in touch!

Sew Confident is a fun, social learning environment where peer support comes as standard! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BRING YOUR OWN SEWING MACHINE as machines are provided.

FREE LUNCH INCLUDED BOTH DAYS - WOO!

Additional Dates: 15 September 2019

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Quilting for Beginners are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
