Saturday June 4th, 10am - 4pm
If you've always wanted to figure out how foundation paper piecing works then now is the time to do it! Once you've mastered one block, the rest makes sense. You will have a choice of floral blocks to work on, and the intention with this workshop is to make one, learn the technique, and turn it into a pretty wall hanging (which you may need to complete at home depending on the pace of your work). Either way, you'll have fun learning something new!
We are delighted to be able to welcome you to our refurbished studio! It is accessed down a flight of stairs from the shop with alternative access direct to the basement for anyone requiring an entrance without steps. If you do have any accessibility needs or questions, please let us know in the comments when you book.
When attending any class, we will meet you at the shop door 10mins before the start time. If you are running late and arrive to a closed shop door, please walk down the side alley (Wilson's Close) to the signposted side entrance and ring the doorbell.
This group is not suitable for complete beginners to sewing as you must be able to fill a bobbin, thread a machine and sew with accurate straight seam allowance. If you are completely new to sewing, we suggest you try our Beginner Sewing Weekend.
However if you have a little machine sewing experience, and can sew confidently in a straight line, then you're good to go!
This class is suitable for adults only, age 16+.
Please carefully check our Terms & Conditions prior to booking.
