Introduction to Patchwork & Quilting classes to be held in Braunton

You may have heard about this as a summer school, but I have decided to try this starting in February 2023, rather than waiting till the summer next year.

The classes will be held 1.30 – 4.00pm on a Wednesday afternoon in The Aggi pub in the center of Braunton. The course will last 6 weeks, starting Wednesday 15/02/2023, finishing Wednesday 22/03/2023. The cost of the 6-week course will be £60.00 per person, paid in advance to secure your place.

The course will teach how to make the quilt shown, taking you through all the aspects of designing the quilt, cutting fabrics using a rotary cutting system, very accurate seaming, adding borders, layering and quilting, and finally binding the quilt.

Prior to the course I will provide you with a list of fabrics and equipment you will be required to bring to complete the course, which will include a sewing machine. Your choice of colours & patterns for the fabrics is entirely your own but I will be happy to advise and assist. The quilt will be suitable in size for a lap quilt, baby play mat, or cot quilt.

Parking at The Aggi is free to customers so its easy to offload heavy equipment for the course.

If you are interested in joining this class, please contact me on 07855 178015. Please feel free to share this invitation to friends and family who may wish to come along to the classes too.

                           Many thanks for your interest
