In this workshop, Kate will teach you how to prepare your fabrics and stitch them together to make a traditional hexagon quilt top. You will come away with a small pieced section of patchwork and the skills you need to continue with your project at home. English Paper Piecing is a slow hand sewing technique, which can be tricky to master, and the creation of a full quilt is often a labour of love. However by the end of the class you should be raring to get started on that new family heirloom!

No previous patchwork or quilting experience is necessary, however it will be helpful (but not essential) if you can thread a needle and complete very basic hand stitches.

Really enjoyed this class. I went in as a total beginner and came out feeling confident about my new patchwork skills. The teacher broke everything down into easy steps, was attentive and the class just sped by!
