Hello – Liz here, I’m the tutor on the Sunday patchwork classes at Brighton Sewing Centre. We have just added some new dates, so thought I would write a little about the classes to give you an idea of what to expect if you fancy coming along.
The classes run from 11am till 3pm, so give you a little Sunday lie in, and time to head into town for a roast dinner after! I always start with an introduction, and bring in a variety of my beginners quilts, and current work in progress to show. Everyone in the group then decides what they are working on. I have patterns which can be followed to make up projects such as cushions and baby quilts. Alternatively students bring along a work in progress, or a sketch or idea that we develop.
The four hours fly by, and once the group is busy sewing I make tea and coffee. We don’t stop for lunch, so I suggest students bring lunch with them, or can pop out – the class is very relaxed.
The Sunday sessions provide a good introduction to patchwork, or a chance to get in some uninterrupted sewing in a friendly environment.
The dates for the Summer are:
The cost is £25 per session, and the class size is limited to 6. The workshop is equipped with sewing machines, however if you want to bring along your own one then that is fine.
Classes fill up quickly, so if you see they are full add you name to the waiting list and we will call if another date is added.
If you have any questions, do leave a comment here or contact the shop.
Thanks for reading!
