If you have done a bit of dressmaking before you started your quilting journey then you might have dreamt of combining the two skills to make a quilted jacket.
On the first day of this class we will make a toile to make the garment fit your unique curves. We will then discuss the materials you’d like to use for your garment and will find out how much fabric you will need to quilt until the next day. On the second day, we will cut out the pattern from your quilted sandwich and I will guide you through the different ways to neatening the seams. We will most likely only have time to make the body warmer, but I will show you how to add sleeves at home if you wish to.
Before the class: You will need to choose the pattern you’d like from the requirement list, purchase the pattern as I can’t provide the patterns. You will also need to cut out the pattern in your size
Price £80 for both days
Price do not include the pattern and fabrics
Bring an A3 size sandwich for practicing a new quilting design in each lesson. The project you want to work on for the rest of the day is up to you! So bring some spare quilting sandwiches to practise on or a project you want to start quilting but need a helping hand.
Cancellation with 2 weeks notice – we will refund your payment or offer you a place on a future workshop.
Cancellations within 13 – 8 days of the workshop – we will refund 50% of the payment.
Last minute cancellations, ie. 7 days or less before a workshop – we’re afraid we cannot refund any payments as from experience we’ve found it impossible to fill places at such short notice.
Full refund for cancelation under 14 days possible if we replace you. Thank you for understanding with these formalities.
