We've had several "quilt club" meet-ups at the studio and have set regular times for our future groups.

We'll be having a day time group on the first Friday of the month from 2-4pm and an evening meet-up the third Wed of the month 6:30-8:30.  Hopefully, this will accommodate everyone's schedule.  Here's what you can expect if you are visiting us for the first time...

At the beginning of each meet-up, we will have a show and tell of what you’ve made or are working on.   I’ll do a demo of how to make a new “block” and then everyone can crack on with their sewing, socializing and sharing.  You can also practice your free motion quilting skills on our LAQ.  I’ll be on hand to help you with your projects, though everyone is really happy helping each other as well…. Fantastic

Each month we’ll be learning how to make a new block.  You can save them up and make a sampler quilt. Making different blocks will improve your sewing and patchwork skills, which most people listed as one of their priorities. We’ll have enough fabric on hand for everyone to make their own “block”.
You're first visit is free and then £3.00 or £2.50 for concessions.  This will help cover the cost of fabric, thread and tools.  No need to bring anything, unless you would like to.  Sewing Machines are limited, so feel free to bring your own.
