Product Description

Whether you want to start a project for your home or make a gift for friends and family, this is the perfect class for any quilting beginner.

During the 3 hour class we will show you how to cut and prepare your fabric, the easiest method of sewing patchwork as well as quilting and binding techniques. We will also cover the design opportunities available in adding borders and sashing so that you can return home with the skills required to start working on your own project, be it from a pattern or your own design.

During the 3 hour session we will create a quilted place mat, so that you can learn the techniques on a small scale project.

    What a great evening – Aneka helped us through every stage of creating our mini quilt/placemat and I learned so much in the 3 hours we were there. Studio was lovely and was a very relaxing session. Already booking my next course – couldn’t recommend this course highly enough!

    My second course with Aneka, and yet again I thoroughly enjoyed it & learnt so much in just 3 hours. Went home with a little mini quilt which could be used as a placemat & now cant wait to make a full size quilt and i’m already planning which course to do next :)

    Fabulous course. Aneka goes through the process step by step with very clear instructions and has endless patience. I really loved learning how to quilt and am looking forward to having a go at home.
