Weekly classes are offered in all aspects of Patchwork, Quilting and Applique´ including techniques and design in both traditional and contemporary approaches, using hand or machine sewing.  Students work on their own choice of project with individual guidance from the tutor when required.

These classes are arranged during the academic terms - Autumn, Spring and Summer.  The one day workshops are fitted into the Programme throughout the year.                                                                                                     

City & Guilds courses are available at all levels of  Patchwork and Quilting.

THE STUDIO

The classes are held in a spacious studio with plenty of room for students to work at large tables. A well lit working environment is of prime importance and this is provided by an even distribution of natural light and ‘daylight’ balanced artificial light for both day and evening classes. In addition to the sturdy work tables a large work bench is set aside for any student to lay out work or drawings during the design stage of a project or layer - up a quilt prior to quilting. A light box is provided for design work and tracing patterns for appliqué or quilting. An adjacent ‘wet area’ provides facilities for dyeing and printing. All studio equipment is available for students to use outside their normal class time; this is by arrangement.   An extensive reference library of books and patterns is also provided for students.

autumn winter programme  2016


Make a TOPSY QUILT like Shirley’s Single size and Sue’s Lap Quilt.

A vintage/antique look which suits a variety of Interior Designs and Colour Schemes.

Why Topsy?

You will build up simple 15cm square blocks into larger blocks to make a quilt size of your choice -

It just ‘grows like Topsy’ meaning something which gradually becomes larger -

From -  ‘ Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ by Harriet Beecher Stowe  1851

Ready cut to size prepared fabrics and wadding for you to buy for this ‘quilt as you go’ project -

you just do the sewing!  

Hand or machine pieced the blocks offer many different designs depending on how they are placed.

15cm and 30cm blocks.
