Scrappy Quilting - One Day Workshop


Saturday 21st September 10am - 4pm

We are all increasingly aware of the value of the resources we use and how important it is not to be wasteful. Of course, quilts were originally designed with frugality in mind, reusing scraps of fabrics from other items which had worn out to make useful and beautiful covers. 

If you sew at all, quilting, dressmaking or anything, you will have plenty of scraps left over. These have so much potential! 

In this class tutor Jemma Dell will introduce you to several different techniques to make the most of scraps using your sewing machine. These will include the ‘ticker tape’ method, Foundation Paper Piecing, random piecing and log cabin. We will discuss storage and organisation and use of colour and print. 

In the afternoon you will be able to choose one technique to practice, making more/larger blocks. 

There will be an assortment of scraps available but please bring your own too. We will be able to use scraps as small as one inch as well as long ‘strings’, selvages, and larger pieces. If you have one or two larger off-cuts of fabric and quilt wadding (approx 15 x 15 inches) these will also be useful. No stretch or knit fabrics please. 

You will need to bring your sewing machine, it’s manual and plenty of neutral coloured thread. 

Refreshments during the day are provided, you can bring your own lunch or upgrade to have lunch with us for £12.00.
