Patchwork Classes

Explore different blocks every week, in our small, informal classes. Knowledge of using a sewing machine is preferable, as we only have two hours to master each block.

Fabrics are provided for you each week, and we have sewing machines in the classroom for you to use.

Students will need, however, a rotary cutter, cutting mat and patchwork ruler.

You can purchase any of these at Fabric Focus, and receive 10% off when buying supplies for your class.

Over this 3 Week course we will look at 3 different optical illusion blocks.

Fabric provided, but you will need to bring your rotary cutter, cutting mat and ruler.

Class is limited to 6 students- book quickly to avoid disappointment!

 

 

 

Learn how to create a menagerie of different animals without the use of templates or paper-piecing.

These blocks can be tricky due to small shapes, so some patchwork experience preferred.
