Classes And Workshops

We run classes on a daily basis covering all levels from beginners to experienced quilters.  Our new Course Brochure is available now and classes are open to all for enrolment.  These can vary from one off single day classes, two/three day courses and monthly courses over the twelve month period. 

Previous long term courses have developed and gained their own momentum with all classes progressing on a monthly basis as a social gathering of quilters with like interests and developing friendships.

Regular Extra Tuition classes are also held for those quilters with technical assistance on hand while completing their individual projects.

We also run regular UFO (Unfinished Objects) classes for those quilters who wish to take advantage of this facility on an either half day or full day basis.

Regular Monthly Courses

The following courses are a continuation of our monthly classes for our regular quilters. These courses are a development of previous classes and as such most are fully booked.

We do hold a reserve list for these classes in case available spaces arise.
