About the Course
Day Workshops in 2019
Starting at 10am and finishing at 4pm you will have a great time learning new skills and honing existing ones. These are amazing opportunities to get high quality teaching in very small classes - without breaking the bank!
1st June - Quilters Colour Workshop - A practical approach to making colour choices for your quilts. You will create a mock-up of a colour wheel; learn how to group fabrics in their colour families and investigate relationships across the families; investigate warm and cool tones, relative value, proportion and intensity. You will choose a couple of quilt blocks to use as mock ups - applying the skills learnt during the day so that you can audition fabric choices before you commit to a final colour scheme for a quilt. This is a hands-on, investigate workshop. There will be no sewing so no need to bring your machine! However we will be using fabric and glue, and maybe even some coloured pencils or crayons.

I booked a VIP 1day workshop on 15th September for a day of learning the skills and techniques of quilting. My VIP day did not disappoint! As there were only three of us (myself and two daughters), all totally new to quilting, we received lots of individual attention, so progressing through the techniques well.
Sheena is a great teacher, explaining and demonstrating carefully. She’s also brilliant at ‘sorting’ it with humour, when things go wrong, which they did!!! (I had ‘wonky’ eyes as I’d had a cataract operation only ten days before!).
I learned so much.
I was inspired to continue and finish my practice piece during the week following the course and I now can’t wait to try some more quilting. Thanks Sheena - a brilliant day...

I booked the “free motion quilting day” as this was an area that I wanted to develop. The class was small which allowed us to have one to one tuition when r required. The day was enjoyable and being able to discuss things with other students was very helpful. Sheena had a relaxed way of teaching which made me feel that I could ask questions freely.
All in all a very good day and I came home wanting to practice and move forward with this skill .
I have booked another day with Sheena on Jelly Roll Quilts

My day of “free motion quilting” was enjoyable, informative and inspiring. Sheena has a great knack of sharing her knowledge in a humorous way. She encourages and motivates and gives tips and short-cuts to simplify tasks. The limited class size means that you get plenty of one-to-one time with Sheena as well as discussion and sharing ideas with the other students. I learned so much
