Starts Monday October 25th, 6.30pm - 9pm, THREE WEEKS
Hosted by Aileen, in this group you will tackle a more challenging patchwork project - you'll piece curves, master appliqué and make bias binding as part of this gorgeous table runner!
WHAT THE CLASS WILL COVER:
- Master curved piecing
- Hand quilting
- Make and apply bias-cut binding from scratch
We will also recap on techniques to improve accuracy from beginning to end of the project
Please be aware that our workshops are temporarily being held in the Abbey Church Hall on Abbey Park Place while we renovate a new studio in the new shop. The temporary space is accessed via a flight of stairs. We will bring you a FANTASTIC new accessible studio space as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
This class is suitable for adults only, age 16+.
This class is suitable for confident beginners & improvers - you must have a little understanding of patchwork and machine sewing. If you are completely new to machine sewing, we suggest you try our Beginners Sewing Weekend first.
Please carefully check our Terms & Conditions prior to booking.
