I went down to Patch Fabrics on Saturday to teach a workshop. I love Claire's shop, and although this was only my second time teaching there it feels like a home from home. The 8 ladies that came to learn how to make a simple jelly roll quilt top were all so lovely. Some were completely new to sewing, some had been sewing for years but were new to quilting. Every single one I would love to hang out with on a regular basis. If it was a smidge closer I'd be down at their quilting club every single time.
The ladies all steamed ahead and got stuck into their quilts.
And they made me feel unbelievably welcome, which is always nice.
Everyone managed to finish their rows and we had 2 completed quilt tops.
Both so different but equally as beautiful.
I had such a fun day, it's great hanging out with so many lovely like minded folks and having a laugh at the same time.
I've got a couple of dates booked in for more workshops with Claire, so I'll keep you all posted on those.
There is also one last lonely place on my English Paper Piecing workshop this coming Sunday February 19th (at my house, near Wakefield in West Yorkshire). It's a full day from 10-3pm, with all materials and lunch included (and cake, tea, coffee, biccies) and costs £35. You don't need to bring anything - just your good self. The badly behaved dog has been banished for the day too, so it's just the fat cats that might bother you a little (but they're really quite nice, I promise).
