Its that time of year when we start looking for that winter project. The one to do whilst we hibernate away until spring.
Now, not sure if this will be the same this year, as we have all been in a forced hibernation for too long, but if you are looking for the winter project, how about having a go at patchwork and quilting.
Caroline our patchwork tutor is back with a one day workshop in October. Perfect time to learn the basics and then carry on at home. The one day workshop, “a quilt in day’ is exactly as it says.
You will learn how to cut, piece, join, boarder, layer and bind so you take away a finished simple quilt in a day. Plus Caroline will be on hand with lots of little hints and tips!
The finished quilt will be approximately 1mtr x 1mtr, a great little lap quilt. (Maybe the perfect Christmas gift for someone?)
The workshop includes all the materials and lunch is provided.
Machine and equipment are available to use but if you prefer to bring your own please do.
The workshop is 10-4pm Sunday 24th October. You can book online or call into the shop.
If you don’t feel like signing up to a workshop but would like to have a go at home, we have lots of patchwork and quilt materials in stock including.
