in this jam-packed workshop, we’ll cover all the techniques you need to make a small patchwork quilt. Its a very broad topic, so think of this workshop as an introduction to get you started. We’ll cover cutting, piecing, talk about different fabrics, we’ll join the fabric and quilt it all on the machine, and then bind it (you may need to finish the binding at home).

You will need to know how to thread up and use a sewing machine, but don’t need to be a whiz at anything too technical. All materials included.

One 6 hour workshop.
