Starting a new course

Yesterday was the start of the new monthly course in patchwork and quilting in Tetbury and it was a really fun day!

The idea of the course is to teach all the skills needed for making a quilt over 6 month period, with monthly classes and support between classes if needed.

So many people want to learn patchwork and quilting, but committing the time to weekly classes to learn the skills is a big ask in our busy lives. This course teaches new skills during the monthly class that can be used at home, at your own pace.

We are learning how to piece an Eight Point Star Block using HST.
Perfect for people who want to fit the classes in around everything else going on!

So yesterday we started the journey together by learning about rotary cutting, piecing and fabric placement.

It was great fun!

A very good friend started the course having never been interested in sewing before. She joined to support her lovely daughter who attends my after school club and has developed a serious addiction to all things sewing!

Once she discovered that patchwork is all about precision and attention to detail, she was in her element! She now has the patchwork bug!

I love giving people new skills and helping them to find their inner fabric addict!

A new course will be starting in September. If you are interested in joining please email me for more details.
