This is our popular beginners class for those who are looking for a clear and comprehensive introduction to the sewing skills needed to make a quilt. We have taught over 100 people to make a Simple Sampler Quilt over the last 5 years.
The class will cover many of the basic patchwork and quilting skills, using the classic sampler quilt as a framework for teaching you a range of techniques. After completing this class you will have many of the necessary skills to enable you to go on to tackle many other quilting patterns. A comprehensive set of step by step notes are included for your reference.
This class is 6 lessons spread over 2 months. You will need to supply your own fabric and sewing equipment, we sell a Starter Pack of essential items for this class in the shop .https://www.plainstitchshop.com/product/simple-sampler-starter-kit/ This is a hand sewing class. Access to a sewing machine is not necessary but may be useful in the final construction of your quilt. Full guidance will be given in the class pre-read.
