New courses/classes in Billingshurst

Hi folks – I want to let you all know that I have joined up with CC’s Emporium at 10 Jengers Mead, Billingshurst and will be delivering some classes there.  I am really excited about this opportunity and those of you living there in that neck of the woods will find it easier to get to them.

What/when will I be teaching?

Make a quilt in a day – Saturday, 14th July from 10 am – 4 pm.  One of my favourite classes to teach.  You get yourself a pre-cut jelly roll or pack of charm squares, bring your sewing machine and sewing kit and I will provide you with the pattern (and also tell you what to do, of course, and how to make it)  I have taught this class many times and the results are super.  You will only be making a quilt top on the day – (there is a limit to what we can achieve, of course) but that is fine – you will be on the way to having a quilt when you later put it together – possibly in the class on 28th July).

11th September – Log Cabin Block workshop – 10 am – 1 pm  The first of 4 workshops on the Log Cabin Block.  It has so many variations that we could do lots of different ones, but will start with the basic one of course.  You choose your fabrics (either just for this class, or for the four classes, which will be delivered over the next 3 months), bring your sewing machine, sewing kit and in 3 hours you will have your block finished.

Putting your quilt together  – 28th July 10 am – 4 pm.  Bring your quilt top, wadding and backing and let’s help you to have your quilt sandwiched and either ready to quilt, or even started to be quilted!  A fun and rewarding class for those of you with those spare quilt tops that you have made but really couldn’t face putting into a sandwich.  I will show you how to do it so that you can do it with confidence for your future quilts.  You will need your sewing machine, a walking foot for it, sewing kit and some other things that I tell you about, when you book your class.

Beginner patchwork and quilting course – starting 7th September 10 am to 1 pm.

This class will start you off on your patchwork journey by making blocks which are increasingly more challenging while you are learning the basic techniques to make you a patchworker.  Over the eight 3 hour sessions you will make six patchwork blocks for you to make a samplar quilt.  We will be working on traditional styles as well as  modern patchwork.  Emphasis is always on accuracy, cutting and measuring carefully and sewing with care as well. We meet on alternate Fridays – 7th, 21st Sept; 5th, 19th Oct; 2nd, 16th, 30th Nov. and 5th December.
