Quilt In A Day

Do you want to get started with quilting?

If you want to learn face-to-face, then I offer a ‘Quilt in a Day‘ course at my artist’s studio at Ushaw, an historic building near Durham (UK).

You will learn to make a small quilt and learn everything you need to make a bigger quilt in the future.  The only skill you need before starting is to be able to use a sewing machine to stitch a straight line of stitching.

It costs £67 for six hours tuition; all the materials and equipment are provided. You bring your own packed lunch and I provide tea, coffee and biscuits.

To book, you just need to pay via PayPal, using the button below, and then send me a text message so I can arrange a day that suits you. My mobile number is 07976 009830.

‘Make Friends with Your Sewing Machine’

This is an absolutely basic course to introduce you to a sewing machine, so you can use it with confidence. You can bring your own machine, or learn on one of mine. This is a half-day course delivered as a one-to-one session, so it can be tailored to you individually.

It costs £25 for two hours tuition; all the materials and equipment are provided. Tea, coffee and biscuits are included
