Well the Year has got off to a great start and lots of enthusiasm around for all of the classes including a new addition for 2018.......we've had so much fun with the New Patchwork Taster Session ( 2 Hour Workshop, bargain for £10

Lots of questions have come up: how much fabric does one need to buy? How big should a quilt be? What order does one construct it in? Theyre all difficult questions to answer without knowing what pattern the person may end up working from. So for this workshop Ive put together the instructions to make a very simple quilt, that will hopefully be just right for someone new to these things. Its a much smaller quilt than you might hope to eventually tackle, more suitable as a throw for a chair, a blanket to go over a pram or pushchair, or even to be laid out on the ground for a baby to lie on at a summer picnic. The reason why Ive chosen to hold workshop sessions for a small quilt, is because this way the maker is able to sample all the different aspects of quilt-making (from cutting fabric, sewing it together, creating a quilt sandwich, quilting it and finally binding it) in a more manageable way. Big quilts are unwieldy, and difficult to handle , need lots of time and fabric...overwhelming for a beginner. This simple quilt will allow you to use lots of different fabrics and can easily be made from scraps or old summer dresses. Sanity warning: I think that whats intrinsically lovely about a homemade quilt is the love and care that has gone into making it, and once your family or friends are snuggled beneath one of your quilts any slight imperfections will only add to the charm, so do try not to become dispirited if perfectly aligned seams elude you at first. How easily a quilt comes together is largely determined by how accurately you have cut the fabrics and by always being sure to maintain a consistent seam allowance as you join pieces together - everything will feel much easier if you keep these two things in mind. The final quilt will measure roughly: 30" x 36" (77cm x 92cm). All measurements include ¼ seam allowances.
