Patchwork sewing machine cover & mat £65
Sep 14 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Patchwork sewing machine cover & mat £65

This workshop  is a great introduction to Patchwork and Quilting.  You will make a sewing machine cover which doubles as a mat with pockets to hold all your sewing equipment whilst you sew.  Useful & fabulous to look at!  You will learn to piece together your Patchwork squares to make pockets which are at the front and back of your cover/mat (great for storing the foot pedal and power lead).  You will  ‘sandwich’ your pockets and main fabric with batting and lining and then go on to quilt the layers together. You will learn how to make your own binding.  Finally you can decorate your cover/mat with an  applique pin cushion heart or a design of your choice.  If you are feeling brave you could even try a little Free motion sewing – we have names for all our sewing machines!  You must be confident with a sewing machine for this workshop.  Please bring along a packed lunch.  We will provide the Tea & Sweet treats.  Requirements:  1 metre of fabric for the  front & back (this can also be used for some of the patchwork squares and binding) however if you want a contrast binding you will need one Fat quarter in a contrasting colour.  You can chose your patchwork squares from a selection of fabrics at the shop or feel free to bring along your own scraps.  Everything else is supplied by us.
