Want to work with me? Here's what I can do and how to get in touch.
Quilt Groups & Guilds
I give talks and can come and teach a workshop for you. See all the details below and Contact me to arrange.
Creativity for Well-being Talk & Trunk Show - In this one hour lecture I talk about my journey into quilting, teaching, how I started writing patterns for publication and my Subscription club. I go on to talk about how quilting helps our well being and mental health. During the talk I show lots of my quilts and am happy to take questions during and after the talk. I bring along my patterns for sale and offer them at a discount for your members. Pricing - £95 plus travel expenses (45p per mile from Hartley Wintney)*
(*For evening talks that are more than 50 miles (1 hour) away, hotel overnight accommodation may need to be provided.)
Workshops at your Guild/Group - I am happy to teach groups of up to 18 people.
I can teach most of my patterns as a workshop, the following work really well. Let me know what you're interested in.
Pricing - £320 for a whole day (10-4pm) plus travel expenses (45p per mile), cost includes any written materials or patterns.
Introduction to Foundation Paper Piecing - Practice making two Star blocks using the techniques of foundation paper piecing. Instructions also included to make the block into a cushion. Some people choose to make one block and turn it into a cushion on the day. Others choose to make multiple blocks to practice the skill.
Ho Ho Ho Cushion - A perfect workshop to hold in the run up to Christmas (or even in the aftermath to be super organised for next year!) We will work on the cushion front during the class, quilting and adding the raw edge, free motion applique. Participants can finish off the cushion back at home if necessary.
First Steps into Free Motion Quilting - perfect for people who want to try free motion but are too scared, or for those who took a class once but never implemented it! We will work through several free motion quilting designs and participants will grow in confidence and ability during the session.
Create Every Day Mini Quilt - This is a great introduction to both Foundation Paper Piecing and Applique. We will use my Create Every Day Mini Quilt Pattern during the day which participants can finish at home after the class.
I can come and teach smaller groups than listed above. Contact me for details and pricing.
I can write tutorials, design patterns for publication and write articles on sewing and quilting topics. Check out my Press page to see some of my previous published work.
I would love to collaborate with you! Contact me to discuss further.
