Summer Patchwork Classes with Mandy Munroe

slashandsewmm

This July sees the return of renowned quilter Mandy Munroe as she heads back to Emporia once more to take a series of patchwork quilt classes. Having had her quilts shown in exhibitions around the world and her designs published in the likes of Popular Patchwork, Mandy has become a big name in the quilting arena, making her classes extremely popular with learners and more experienced sewers alike. So if you’ve ever fancied learning to quilt or upping your patchwork game, now is the time!

Kicking off a whole month of patchwork fun, the first class to take place is the Beginner’s Patchwork on Saturday 11th July. Here’s your chance to learn the basics from a professional and tackle cutting simple squares with a rotary cutter before you discover how to build your first four blocks. Taking place over four hours, this is an ideal way to get comfy with the basic construction and sewing principles involved in creating your first quilt – ideal for complete newbies and perfect as a refresher for those who may not have undertake any quilting in a while. The class costs £50.00 per person and includes four fat quarters of fabric from our huge selection.

The second class run by Mandy over the summer is her Log Cabin Birds session. Here you can expand on your knowledge of basic piecing by creating simple birds using Log Cabin style construction. A chance to learn a brand new approach, this class is suitable for novice quilters and those with a little more experience. The session takes place on Tuesday 21st July 2015, and costs £50.00 per person, which includes fabrics.

Rounding off our patchwork and quilter’s month on Thursday 30th July, the final class is the Sew and Slash session which is a much freer version of patchwork than using the standard blocks. This creative class is perfect for intermediate level patchworkers or ambitious beginners who have some experience of quilting, as it involves being confident with your fabric placement and sewing without a pattern. On the day you will have enough time to create a fantastic quilt top, measuring around 40″ x 54″. The class costs £50.00 per person and includes fabric.
