Learn the basics skills of patchworking to get you started in the crafting world. In this course you will learn how to colour select fabrics, measuring with a patchwork ruler, cutting with a rotary cutter and quilting ruler, pinning your top t the wadding and backing and the quilting. Beginner students will have a choice of easy patterns such as 'Nine – Patch', 'Trip Around the World', or 'Post and Rail' patterns which will teach you ¼” piecing techniques, putting on borders, and mitring corners. Students who already have some patchworking skill are free to choose their own patterns. Students are also free to bring in their unfinished quilts to be completed. This course can also be incoporated into the kids clothing course for anyone interested in making kids clothes.
This coursre is open to all skill levels, as we only have small classes (4 - 6 students) all levels can work in the same class due to limited numbers and no one is disadvantaged. For new students the teacher will assess the level you should be working at and give recommendations of what would be an appropriate first pattern to achieve the best results. Ongoing students are free to choose patterns that they want to make, we encourage students to choose new patterns that will extend their sewing knowledge.
