Skill Levels explained

Categories:

A = anyone and includes patchwork virgins

B = someone with some patchwork knowledge, including rotary cutting skills and ¼” seam allowance mastered

C = someone with good patchwork skills

 

Patchwork/Needlework does require time and patience. It is unlikely you will always finish the project during the class and you will be given all the necessary instructions to complete it at home (Open Format and Follow on classes are also available)

Sewing machines and equipment

We kindly ask you to take your own equipment upstairs, so please make sure that you only bring items that you can carry to our 1st floor classroom. If your sewing machine is too heavy for you to take upstairs, we strongly recommend hiring one of ours (Janome DXL603) which costs just £4.00 per session.

We do thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

Cutting mat, rulers and cutters can be borrowed on a first come, first served basis.

Terms and Conditions

Please note, if you would like to book a place on a class…

 

1)       Please ring the shop to check there are spaces.

2)       We cannot guarantee your space unless you pay for your place – bookings received without payment will be put on a waiting list and transferred to the actual list once paid for.

3)       Should YOU wish to cancel - providing you give us 7 days notice before the class, we will issue a CREDIT NOTE. It can be used against goods or classes and there is no time limit on it. However, if you do not give us a 7 days notice we will NOT BE ABLE to offer a credit note as we would have confirmed the tutor and committed to pay their fee. We will be happy for you to find someone to take your place, but we cannot take responsibility to find someone for you.

4)       Should WE cancel a class, a full refund will be given via original payment method.

 

We will assume T&Cs have been read and agreed when you book on a class.

 

Confetti Landscape with Kate Findlay - Level A

Thursday 7th May 10.30am to 16.30pm  £44.00

Make a small landscape in a day inspired by beechwoods and bluebells. We will collage together a fabric background, add tree trunks, then use a confetti technique, cutting tiny pieces with rotary cutters, and sprinkling these onto “mistyfuse” before ironing and stitching. Images will be provided. The composition can then be finished with hand or machine if preferred.
