September Workshops Back
Saturdays 18th Aug, 1st, 15th and 29th September

Our next session starts on 18th August and I have two places left in the afternoon class. The new project is curved piecing or if you are a beginner I will start you off on a simpler quilt. Please email if you would be interested and we can discuss a suitable project for you..

Mondays 3rd and 17th September and 1st and 15th October
10.15am to 12.15pm

This is a regular block of classes and at this session and the following one in Nov/Dec Pat will show you how to make a selection of 12 ½ inch blocks that can be made into a sampler quilt. You will be making at least six different blocks and can make more if you like. A sampler quilt is made up of same size blocks but in a variety of different designs. Your blocks will be made up of squares, rectangles and triangles to make the different patterns. Pat will also show you how to add sashing and borders and how to complete the quilt by layering up with wadding and backing. This class is suitable for all skill levels. If this is your first project you may prefer to turn the blocks into some cushions or a table runner and should be able to complete these smaller projects over the four classes. The quilt is being taught over two terms.


Saturday 22nd September 10.30am to 3pm

Project Linus UK is a wonderful charity staffed by volunteers who give quilts and knitted blankets to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers. We would like to support their work in West Lothian with our free Linus quilt days. These days are completely free, we will supply all the fabrics and wadding etc if you can please provide your time and expertise to make some quilts for Linus UK. We have some simple quilt patterns such as nine patch and rail fence and we also have sewing machines for you to use, or you can bring your own. Lets get stitching for Project Linus!
