Quilting and embroidery workshops for everyone

Our workshops will show you:

  2. Techniques on cutting fabric and understanding patterns
  3. Accessories used with a sewing machine when quilting or machine embroidering
  4. Design and adapt patterns for your own quilt
  5. How to incorporate machine embroideries, applique, and other materials into a quilt
  6. Different techniques, advice and guidance for machine embroiderers to make the most of their embroidery machines and skills

Why Join Our Workshops

We make our workshops enjoyable and wheelchair-accessible. It doesn’t matter whether you are a beginner or intermediate quilter or machine embroiderer. You don’t have to purchase any equipment prior to attending a workshop as we will provide cutters, rulers etc.

We have a maximum of 12 participants for each patchwork or quilting workshop and eight participants for each machine embroidery workshop. The workshops are small, which allows us more time to spend with each individual and enable them to learn at their own pace.
