About the Course

If you love the idea of creating a patchwork throws/lap quilt but have limited sewing machine skills... If you've already done some patchwork, but only by hand... If you want a new hobby which also allows you to make gifts for your friends and family, or add furnishings to your home..... Then this might just be the holiday for you... You'll make a patchwork cushion (or similar item) and a Bargello lap quilt or a Log Cabin lap quilt. There are lots of REVIEWS on my website!

(This holiday is 7 nights/6 days long, with approximately 4 to 4.5 days in the Studio)
This holiday assumes some (limited) experience in using a sewing machine (if you choose to make a Bargello quilt) or assumes you can already sew with an accurate seam allowance (if you choose to make a Log Cabin quilt).

Prices vary depending on the accommodation option you choose (self-catering/catering). Please see my website for details.
