Welcome to our new Patchwork and Quilting Course Brochure in this our twenty-second  year of trading.

 2018 sees the introduction of more exciting classes that will encourage the beginner and stretch the more accomplished quilters.

 This year sees the continuation of the way we have presented our courses.  Previous classes have developed and gained their own momentum with all classes progressing on a monthly basis as a social gathering of quilters with like interests and developing friendships.  For this reason these classes have been identified separately with reserve lists only. Part two of the brochure identifies courses for those wishing to attend new sessions, as usual classes are limited to six to eight students depending upon the technique being studied.  To avoid disappointment please book early.

 Our teaching class fees will remain the same this year with no increase. The fees are £30.00 per day.

 Unfortunately our UFO will increase for a full day to £9.00, half days either 10.00am until 1.00pm or 1.00pm until 4.00pm will remain at £5.00

 Bookings for courses should be made in advance, secured by a non-refundable deposit of £15.00 per day, on a first come first served basis. It is with regret that, due to experiences in previous years, we now have to request payment of the class fees at least two weeks before the date of the class.  Places not confirmed by receipt of this payment will be offered to customers on the reserve list 

 Every endeavour has been made to provide accurate dates for all classes, there may however be the occasional need to reschedule dates or change classes to Unfinished Objects (UFO) due to circumstances beyond our control.  Adequate notice will of course be given if this should arise.

 Requirement lists will be posted approximately two weeks before the course and samples will be on display within the shop.  Please feel free to pop in and have a look and don’t forget if there are particular classes that you would like us to include, they can be incorporated within the Extra Tuition Days, please ask Jan or Dru for further details.

 I hope that you will join us through the 2018 season and look forward to being of help with any of those quilting problems we all experience from time to time. 

 

Jan
