We run two levels of Patchwork & Quilting workshop - Beginners and Intermediate. Intermediate: You have done some patchwork before, or maybe attended a Beginners workshop. You know the basic skills i.e. how to use a rotary cutter, how to sew accurate seams and match points. If that's you then an intermediate workshop is right for you. However, if none of the above applies to you but you've done dressmaking then the Beginners workshop is for you. And, of course, if you have no sewing experience then you will need the Beginners workshop. If you need further clarification please contact us and we'll help steer you to the most appropriate course for you.

Your Tutor & Workshop Details
I started my first patchwork in 1973, when this age-old craft was increasing in popularity. Since then I have designed and produced innumerable pieces and continue to sew on a daily basis. I have City & Guilds in Patchwork & Quilting and Adult Teaching qualifications and have been teaching for over 12 years at both beginner and more advanced levels. I am delighted to be leading this workshop at Tig's Barn and hope to see you on one of my courses. This workshop will appeal to the absolute beginner possibly with little, or no, sewing experience and those with existing sewing skills who want to learn patchwork & quilting. The course is interactive and during the workshop you will learn the basics of patchwork starting with a brief history of the craft and ending with your first patchwork item to take home with you - either a cushion or a wall hanging. By the end of the workshop you will have sufficient experience to progress with projects of your own. Not essential, however if you own a sewing machine you may bring it as long as it’s in good working order, you know how to use it and you have the instruction book.
