If you're ready for you next patchwork challenge, then it's time to tackle a Bargello quilt! Start with a jelly roll and create gorgeous waves of pattern and colour. Over the course of six weeks, you will patch, piece, quilt and bind a masterpiece to be used as a sofa quilt, or single bed cover.
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 already made and bound a quilt, and want to reinforce that knowledge with new techniques and a fun project, then this is for you!
This class is suitable for adults only, age 16+.
Please carefully check our Terms & Conditions prior to booking.
