Patchwork and Quilting for Beginners with Annabel Groom takes you right back to basics covering tons of skills and providing an invaluable introduction to a new hobby. We have condensed our long beginners term into just two days packed full of priceless information needed to make your own patchwork quilt.
Start completely from scratch by choosing your fabrics, learning about appropriate materials to use and matching colours together, then move on to pattern drafting & template making. Our excellent teacher Annabel will teach you how to make different patchwork blocks, each of which will cover different piecing techniques. You will then move on to learn about sashings, borders, quilting methods and finishing touches.
This is course suitable for complete beginners, even those who have never threaded a needle before. However it is equally appropriate for an experience sewer, who wants to take their existing skills in a new direction. Whilst many areas of this popular craft will be covered in the two days, Annabel will also be teaching some one day Skills Tutorials to top up what you learn.
Each day is from 10am – 4pm. light refreshments will be provided and there will be short break for lunch. Please feel free to bring something with you, or use one of the many nearby food outlets or cafes.
