Workshop List for September – December 2017


Friday 22nd September – Small bags and pouches

An introduction to making a variety of small bags, suitable for make-up, craft projects, ipads or presenting gifts in. Some will have zips, some will be made using patchwork and others appliqued.


Friday 29th September – Feather & Fur

Two workshops rolled into one.

The first project ‘Tweetie Pie’ is great fun, you will make a playful character bird in an array of colours and printed fabrics.  Once you have made one you will be well on your way to making your own flock. They make great decorations, consider a little Robin version for Christmas. They could be used as a pin cushion or a personal gift for a friend.

The second project ‘Pin Cushion Pets’ is a fun project to make your own adorable pin cushion pet.  Taking the basic pattern supplied you can customise your own version or even produce a litter of Heinz 57 varieties. Fabric choices can be from tweeds to brightly coloured prints. Makes a great gift for a friend.


Wednesday 11th October - Beginners & using up your scraps

We have combined this workshop because we know there are lot of beginners who have made a few things and don’t know what to do with their scraps. If you are an absolute beginner, we will show you how to get started by making a cushion, or if you are feeling more adventurous a small quilt top. We also have lots of ideas on how to use your scraps.


Friday 20th & Saturday 21st October

Anne has recently been featured in Quiltmania featuring her beautiful home and her stunning quilts.  Her work has also been exhibited at Cowslip and she is currently working on a new design which will be in Quiltmania next year.  The workshop will be held over two days

Beautiful applique panel which could be a hanging, cushion or centre piece of a quilt.  Anne will show you how place fabric, to make perfect circles and discuss how to quilt the finished piece.

Further information from Anne will be available very soon but needed to get the email out today unfortunately


Friday 27th October – Draw, Stitch Paint

Back by popular demand.

A mixture of contemporary textile skills to create images inspired by the beautiful Exmoor countryside with supplied images of hares, pheasants and the Exmoor stag.  Learn how to transfer the images onto fabric and work into them with applique of traditional tweeds and country themed prints
