Workshops and Classes

Workshops & Classes

We offer a range of workshops and courses suitable for both the experienced quilter and the complete beginner and everyone in between.


Workshop Programme 2018

In the calendar to the right of this panel (on every page) you will find more information on each course and workshop. Find something you are interested in below and then 'hover' over the date with your cursor, and you will see the course title, click on the date and a new window will open to show you details. 

We aim to ensure that we show where courses are full on the website as soon as we can, but sometimes there is a delay.  If a last minute place becomes available at the last minute we post on facebook.

Drop in Sessions – We run regular ‘Drop in’ sessions which are intended for you to come along for advice, if needed, or indeed just ‘you time’ for sewing, and of course you can use the sewing machines etc. Of course the shop will still be open for business. Check our website and if we are not teaching you are welcome to come along, or give us a call to check.

We charge £5.00 for a two and half hour session.

Sewing Group – the first and third Thursday of each month – 6pm – 8.30pm - Our sewing group is intended to be a more social event where we can all sit and chat, share knowledge and experience working alongside each other. We are happy to give some advice and support, as will anyone who is there, but this is not a teaching session.  £5.00 per session

PLEASE NOTE:    Occassionally we will cancel a drop in or Sewing Group to accommodate a workshop or course.  We will post information in the shop, our newsletter, facebook and on our web pages.



Workshops for Beginners

Workshops for Beginners

We offer a range of one day workshops for beginners that provide an introduction to patchwork and quilting.  We try to vary them so that we teach some different techniques. We update our programme regularly - coming up for Christmas are our Hexagonal Table Centre and Wall Hangings.


We know that not everyone wants to make a quilt but often wants to learn a new or differenct technique.  We offer lots of different one day workshops where you can use the panel you make up as a cushion top or insert as a panel in a quilt.  Currently in the programme we have a 'Simple Patchwork Cushion' and a Prairee Point Cushion.




Our Bag workshops are very popular, all completed in one day - you may have a bit of hand sewing to complete.  Our latest design is a new Satchel.  

Our Sewing Caddy design is also very popular 




Our children's clothing workshops are proving to be popular.  Here are some examples

Workshops for Experienced Quilters

We try to create designs for the more experienced patchworker and quilter.  Here are two of our recent designs, on of our Biscuit Tin Girls based on the Erte Starburst design, and our own design for a Peacock which combines patchwork, machine embroidery and machine quilting.

Ever wondered what all those accessories are for? Have you ever created a sample swatch of all your machine can do? Have you ever cleaned your machine? This is the workshop is for you if you answer no to any of these questions. Bring your machine, and its manual along and we will help you get to grips with what your machine can do. Use our maaltchines to practice if you wish.

Cost: £15.00 for a two hour consultation
