New Beginner’s Course Starts

The new Beginners’ Course will start on Thursday 17th October
at Talgai Hall in Llandygai Village, nr Bangor, N Wales.

Dates and times are on the calendar below.

The course will run over eight sessions with strategically placed breaks to give sufficient preparaton time for the next stage, especially when we arrive at hand quilting.

A section from the 2013 Beginner's Quilt

The finished quilt measures 38”(96cm) x 50”(126cm)

The image above shows just one of the possible blocks which form the quilt design everyone will be working on, but each finished piece will be very different once individual fabric/colour choice and block selection is taken into account. I love to see how much variety there can be on each course.

I’m really looking forward to getting down to work and seeing the skills developing – with each new block bringing another system for piecing/layering/quilting and finishing.

I look forward to meeting everyone on Thursday 17th.
