This sewing course is designed especially for those who can use a sewing machine but have limited or no experience of patchwork and quilting and want to learn more. We will guide you and take you through the basics of patchwork and quilting by making this Beginner’s Sampler Quilt.

We will cover all the basics you need to be an avid patchwork and quilter, including using a rotary cutter and mat, how to cut fabrics and sew your blocks together (known as piecing) with accuracy using a sewing machine, how to quilt all three layers (front/wadding/back) together and how to bind the finished edges.

Completing this course will give you the skills and confidence you need to tackle more complicated projects going forward. The Beginner’s Sampler Quilt is comprised of Six 16-inch blocks with either one or two borders. The single border version measures approximately 45" x 63" and the double-border option 55" x 73".

Once booked on the course we will email you a full list of requirements.

About your Tutor:
Suzanne Fisher has been teaching patchwork and quilting for more than five years. She has been using fabric, needles and thread to create things since childhood. She made her first quilt from a kit bought at the Ardingly Quilt show in the early 1990s and has not looked back since. She studied and achieved City and Guild courses in both Embroidery and Patchwork and Quilting. She has made quilts from patterns, ideas gained from different cultures, the World around her and from random ideas scribbled down in a notebook. She uses dyes and printing to make her own fabrics or uses commercially made fabric.
Suzanne is a regular contributor to the UK magazine Popular Patchwork both writing articles about making bindings for quilts and designing and making quilt projects. Suzanne is a member of the Quilters’ Guild and several small embroidery and patchwork groups in Sussex.
