In this workshop you will learn everything you need to create your own hand made patchwork quilt! You will be guided through the cutting and patchwork process and sew a small sample to get you comfortable with the techniques.

We will be practising big stitch quilting using cotton sashiko thread and will discuss other kinds of hand and machine quilting.
