Beginner's Patchwork and Quilting with Bev Mayo


About the Course

Interested in patchwork and quilting? Not sure how or where to start. Not quite ready for City and Guilds yet? Then this is the course for you. Bev runs a beginner’s patchwork and quilting class; join her on the first or fourth Wednesday of each month (or even both) and learn all the skills you need to create your own masterpiece quilt. If you don’t know what project you would like to try, Bev will have projects and patterns on offer that are perfectly suited to beginners. If Wednesday, isn't convenient, Bev also teaches Tuesdays and Fridays.

We are very proud to introduce Bev Mayo as one our tutors. Bev is completely unique by offering officially recognised City and Guilds design and craft qualifications, as well as more relaxed beginners patchwork classes.

Bev is a natural designer and a well experienced teacher, she has always enjoyed creating, designing and crafting but it was not until after a Zoology degree (a slight detour!) that Bev took her craft to the next level. Learning how to cross stitch led to designs being published in national magazine and then to an impressive list of City and Guilds qualifications; Creative Embroidery certificate and diploma levels as well as City and Guilds Patchwork and Quilting Level 3 certificate.

There is no arguing that Bev has an impressive resume and it does not only include qualifications. Bev has worked in local Primary and Secondary schools as the ‘Artist in Residence’ and a textiles teacher, helping several schools achieve their Art Mark along the way.

As well as passing on her knowledge, Bev is always learning new skills. She is an active member of the Embroiders Guild and the Quilters Guild. Her constant learning has allowed her to have work displayed locally and further afield; she has been a Charles Henry Foyle Award finalist twice with work being exhibited at the Needle Forge Museum in Redditch.

We are very happy that Bev makes time in her busy crafting life to hold her City and Guilds courses at Tudor Rose Patchwork, giving students the opportunity to gain new skills with a recognised qualification in patchwork and quilting, hand embroidery and machine embroidery.

Located in just north of Bedford, Bedfordshire, close to the borders of Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire, easily accessible from the A6.

I have loved learning with Bev. I have created a stunning super king size sample quilt and would never have completed it without Bev's guidance and expertise. I highly recommend her classes.
