New Classes & Workshops

The new list of classes for Autumn 2016 is now out and places are already booking up!  We’ve got some exciting new classes, some old favourites and the next block of paper piecing club dates.  Have a look at our ‘Classes and Workshops’ page for details and descriptions/photos of the projects.

Well done to the ‘Sampler Quilt’ class participants!  It was, admittedly, patchwork bootcamp but everyone rose magnificently to the challenge and produced stunning blocks – well done everyone!  Just got to add the sashing ….. but here are some of the beautiful finished blocks:

New Bali Pops and Batiks.

The new Bali pops have now arrived and they’re gorgeous!  Just incase anyone likes Bali pops.  There’s also lovely new batiks on the bolt.  This time we’ve also got some beautiful solid/plain batik Bali pops and snaps (5″ squares) – they look like rainbows!

Grace’s Quilt Frolic!

It was celebration time at Edinburgh Patchwork this Thursday as we had Grace’s Hen Party Quilt Frolic!  The work room was bursting with Grace’s hens (a lovely bunch of ladies) and they all worked hard, sewing rotary cutting and pinning, as a team to create Grace’s hen quilt.  It was super fun and we wish the very best to Grace and Kenny.

Grace and the hens!

New Classes for Autumn 2015

Check out the classes and workshops page for the new list of classes with lots of photos of the projects.  A few projects do not yet have photos but these will be added asap.

We’re starting an English paper piecing club in September and since we’ve already had loads of interest, get in touch soon to book a place.  If there are too many people for one group, I’ll form another.

We’re going to have an exhibition of work made by people throughout this year, so come along and bring your work.  This will take place on Saturday 29th August 1 pm – 4 pm.  Thank you to everyone who has come into the shop to show me their quilts, either a photo or the actual quilt, and I can tell you there have been many stunning quilts made this year – well done everyone.

So, here’s wee taster of some of the projects coming up!  Happy summer holidays!
