Course Start Dates
Thursday 1st March 2018


Come and join me at the Creative Coffee Hub in Selly Oak,Birmingham and learn the traditional art of patchwork and quilting. We will begin with English paper piecing hexagon's and Grandmother's fans. I will then teach you how to rotary cut for precise piecing and you will make 9 patch blocks using chain piecing. Once your blocks are constructed we will layer and wad them ready for hand quilting and binding. A more detailed class schedule will be emailed to you after booking. WARNING: May become addictive

Skills include: invisible applique, half and quarter square triangles, 9 patch blocks, basting, hand quilting, binding and labelling your quilt.

Classes take place 7-9.30 pm on 5 consecutive Thursdays.

The next class will run in the New Year

What's included in the price?

All materials, instructions and equipment are included. Plus tea and homemade cake :) You are very welcome to bring your own sewing machine to use during classes but I do have machines available.

Want to review this course?

I'd not sewn more than a button for 25 years and I'd never used a sewing machine. Clair took us through the processes step by step and at our own pace. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and found it incredibly relaxing after a busy day. The cakes and company were also fabulous!


Loved loved loved this course! Clair is a fabulous teacher and I enjoyed every minute with her, learning all about quilting. Quality materials, lovely location, delicious cake! And a great handmade piece at the end.......can't wait to do more!


Fantastic course. Great for absolute beginners to sewing or those who need a bit of a confidence boost. I learned lots of new techniques , Clair is a great teacher who tailors the course to suit the participants.
The tea and cakes are an added bonus
