wednesday evening quilting 6.30-9pm 25th July

12.50

We began with our quilt club once a month on Wednesday evenings but it has proved so popular it keeps growing and evolving. Each month, we now have 3 sessions running - you can come to all three each month, come to one particular session on a regular basis or swap and change between the three to give you more flexibility. These relaxed friendly groups are a mixture of experienced and beginners in quilting - this is a really good class for new quilters to attend as the students pick up techniques and ideas from each other with Lynn on hand to assist. Bring along a project that you would like to do or have already started and Lynn will guide you along giving great tips and ideas. Lynn is a very patient teacher, providing guidance and help each session. Bring along your own project (or we will set you off on one) and we will work on it together at these informal social classes - a good way to get to meet other crafters. Suitable for absolute beginners and the more advanced too.

*IF YOU ARE MACHINE SEWING YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN SEWING MACHINE. *
