This is a beginner quilting class where you will learn basic quilting and how to bind the edge of a piece of work. Participants in our earlier patchwork class may bring along their patchwork pieces for quilting and binding of one or both pieces.
You may like to quilt one piece and make the other into a cushion in our subsequent cushion making class to gain a broader skill base – if you are intending to progress to the cushion making class then please be aware that you will not bind your work in this second class, it is the final step in completing the Envelope Cushion Cover.
New class participants will get to make a practical fabric trivet using the materials provided or you may choose to bring your own fabric if you prefer.
Participants are welcome to bring their own sewing machine or use one of ours.
