If you have always wanted to make a quilt, but didn’t know where to start this is the course for you…

beginners sampler quilt

The course will run over 12 sessions where you will learn basic patchwork techniques including American and English Piecing, how to sash, quilt and bind a quilt.

You will build your own library of patterns, templates and skills that will enable you to complete a small quilt.

The finished item measures 44″ square, but can easily be extended if you wish.

Cost £180 – To secure your place please book here

You will need to bring:

  • 4 x 0.5 metres of cotton fabric – Choose a patterned, non directional fabric, then choose other colours that co-ordinate with it… try to have different tones, ie pale fabrics, dark and medium fabrics.
  • You will need to buy more fabric for the sashing, backing and some wadding, but these can be purchased during the course
  • Pencil and ruler
  • Sharp fabric scissors and general purpose scissors
  • Basic sewing kit – needles and cotton to co-ordinate with your fabric

Sewing machines are available to use in class and with a maximum of 8 students, spaces are limited, so booking is essential.

A £50 deposit is required and will secure your place. Full balance payable by the first class.

What they say:

“I joined Rachel for her Beginner’s Patchwork Sampler Quilt course a few years ago. Rachel is a patient teacher and effective communicator, who clearly knows her subject matter inside out. I was a complete beginner with no idea about fabric piecing when I started the course, but the techniques learnt have been an invaluable foundation to the contemporary textile art I now enjoy. I would recommend this course to anybody who likes to complete a project whilst learning; the finished quilt is perfect for snuggling under whilst watching TV!”
