Patchwork

Two patchwork groups with plenty of spaces so join now

 

Machine Patchwork

Meets: 2nd Tuesdays of the Month

Time: 14:00 – 16:30pm

The group is a mixture of very experienced and novices so it’s a good opportunity to swap techniques and help it other. We try to introduce a new method each month and also work on group projects.
Using a rotary cutter and cutting mat a huge variety of patchwork patterns can be produced quickly using a sewing machine. Designs can incorporate stripes, squares and triangles.

The patchwork can be used to make small items such as cushions, place mats, table runners etc or larger items such as baby quilts and bed quilts.

The finished tops can then be machine or hand quilted according to preference.

Rotary cutters, cutting mats and sewing machines are available for use. Fabric and a hand sewing kit is all that is required to get started producing patchwork tops.

 

Patchwork 1

Meets: 1st Tuesday of the month

Time: 14:00 – 16:00

This group has now been going since November 2011.

We are a group of eight with a variety of experience from beginners to experts. We meet in each other’s houses and exhibit our work in local and national shows.

Some months a member demonstrates a new technique; demonstrates a certain project, eg making a patchwork purse or a specific patchwork block that can be used in a sampler or on its own for a quilt.

On other months we work on our own projects. It is here that we help each other with specific problems that members need advice on.
