    About this class

    Join this interactive, exciting, and hands-on class and learn the art of quilting with expert sewer, Jenny Haynes. During this 7-hour course you will be guided through the art of sewing a stunning clamshell quilt, and will leave with an abundance of new skills, not to mention a new favourite hobby!

    Did you know?

    Quilting is an ancient art form and can be dated back to the year 3400 BC. Unbelievably, the oldest quilt around today was made around 1360-1400 and is called the Tristan Quilt.

    In this class

    If you are feeling adventurous or looking for a new and stimulating challenge then this course is just for you! In this class you will learn how to machine-piece wonderful curves, making a clamshell quilt. Jenny Haynes of Papper, Sax, Sten, will teach you how to cut, sew and press curves and get you well on your way to making your own clamshell quilt top.

    This classic pattern is brilliant for showing off your favourite fabrics, and looks great on solids too! This class also includes a template worth £15!

    Students should have previous experience in patchwork projects, prior to attending this class.

    Students will need to bring or buy the materials for their quilt top. You will need:

    • nine 8" squares all in different fabrics
    • 0.25m for background fabric.

    All other notions and tools will be provided.

    Now you can

    • Practice these techniques at home and keep on improving at the craft
    • Try out a few patterns of your own using these techniques
    • Teach others the clamshell pattern technique, as well as all the other tips and tricks that you picked up during the class- sharing is caring, as they say!
