After the success of our Quilt Along Groups this term we will be continuing with our fortnightly quilting groups and also adding a few more!

The groups run from 10am-1pm and cost £8 per session (the first 2 sessions payment is required in advance, after which payment for the next session is required at the end of the previous one. This helps us work out numbers and plan our day accordingly)

Suggested projects are available and many of our members choose to work together on similar projects. If you are looking for a new project idea we can help you with suggestions. However, you are welcome to bring your own project to work on if you'd prefer.

These sessions are not a taught class, as such, but help is on hand throughout the session to help you to complete your projects.
