Machine Patchwork Courses

Have you ever wanted to try machine patchwork but not known how to start?

Learn the skills required for successful machine patchwork and quilting.  Courses suitable for complete beginners and those with some experience run in Letchworth and Watford.

A range of techniques will be covered each term culminating in a quilt or wallhanging or a range of smaller projects.  The skills include rotary cutting, getting the best from your sewing machine, making colour choices, hand and machine piecing, hand and machine quilting, applique and basic construction methods.

Classes run a half day a week over 10 or 12 weeks in Watford WD17, on Tuesday evenings, 7.00 – 9.30pm and Thursday mornings, 9.30am – 12.00 for people with some experience, and Thursday afternoons, 12.30 – 3pm and Thursday evenings, 7.00 – 9.30pm for absolute Beginners.  £180 per term (10 weeks)  £198 per term (12 weeks)

These classes are very small (maximum of 4 people in each class) so that you get lots of individual attention and opportunities to develop at your own pace.

Contact me to find out more.


I also teach at The Settlement, Letchworth and you can contact them direct for more information.  Classes here are for up to 10 people.  They take place in one of the well-equipped craft rooms in this historic adult education centre, and run over 12 weeks on Tuesday mornings 9.45 -12.15pm and Wednesday evenings 7.00-9.30pm

Super testimonial from Nicolette Smith for the Spring term course – I can highly recommend this course, it’s great fun, Sheena Roberts is an excellent tutor and we’ve already created a lap quilt in the last 10 weeks. Give it a go
