About This Course

A homemade quilt is the sort of thing you can hold onto and treasure your entire life. And the process of making your own quilt is detailed, rich and rewarding; not to mention therapeutic.

This course, led by highly regarded Quilt Maker, Patricia Macindoe, is designed to take you another step beyond beginner's quilting. Students will be introduced to techniques such as 'half square triangles' and mitred corners, as week-by-week they create a lap sized 'Bird's In The Air' quilt (approximately 55" x 64").

If you've never made a quilt before, but would love to join this course, please consider our Quilting Basics Workshop or booking some private tuition.

We also recommend, if possible, that students on this course have the use of a sewing machine at home or a friend's house. This will allow some work to be done on your quilt in your own time. Note that if you don't have access to a machine, they are available to rent at our studio (enquire for details). We also sell a range of Janome sewing machines and offer discounted prices to all our students. 

"This course has been a great opportunity to put my existing skills to good use, while learning something completely new. Patricia is an extremely experience quilter and teacher. The atmosphere is relaxed and the studio a wonderful place to work in"
Anna Kerr, Quilting for Beginners Student.

Cancellation & Course Fees Refund
