This is the perfect way to get involved in quilting or to re-discover it, so this absolute basics workshop is ideal for both beginners and more experienced sewers. You will learn about all the tools and the basic techniques to make a patchwork quilt by making this mug rug, 9” square ( 23cm x 23cm ) with Victoria Coward from Cuddle Monsters. In this workshop you’ll practice basic patchwork skills, accurately cutting and measuring fabric, sewing a 1/4inch seam and creating a simple patchwork mug rug to keep your tea and biscuits cosy. All materials will be supplied but you will need to bring some equipment.
