Join Gill and begin your patchwork journey! Using the flying geese pattern you’ll create a beautiful and useful zippered, padded, and lined pouch bag. This workshop is particularly suitable for anyone new to patchwork as the design is relatively simple to create using a repeating series of steps. The workshop lasts about 3.5 hours, although this is dependent on the speed the participants work at.

  • you must be familiar with your sewing machine, able to thread it, wind a bobbin, and change the presser foot.

What do you need to bring with you:

  • your sewing machine and all its controls
  • a zipper foot for your sewing machine (most basic machines come with a zipper foot)

Materials for this workshop are not included in the price. The list of what you need to bring can be found here.
