wednesday evening quilting 6.30-9pm 25th July

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.

Martin Winkler

A great range of tramme kits (pronounced trammay).

Tramme is a traditional type of tapestry (or needlepoint) on which the design is laid out on the canvas using horizontal, long-stitched, lines of wool yarn, instead of being painted or printed. This makes it very easy to work out which colour of wool to use, working through the larger holes in the normal way using half-cross stitch (or tent stitch) with the yarns included.

This form of needlework is ideally suited to furnishing uses (cushions/pillows, chair/stool seats and backs) because of it's hard wearing properties. the tapestry is worked on 10 hpi double thread canvas

There are lots more kits availalbe in the range. Click here to view the full Martin Winkler catalogue in a new tab
