We are very proud that our Classes and Workshops are so popular!

Students often rebook because of our easygoing teaching methods and in-depth knowledge of various techniques. We all remember being nervous beginners and so we are especially gentle with anyone new and nervous! We love to challenge our more experienced students too with detailed projects, however, we always allow you to set the pace. The standard 10% off fabrics purchased in store is a nice bonus too!

We ask that you use your own machine, scissors, thread and straight pins and quilting pins during class. These items (except machines) can be purchased during class. Machines are available to rent for €5 per session/€20 per course. Fabric is not included unless otherwise stated. Fee is payable in full upon booking.
Private bookings are very welcome including groups. We are happy to tailor a class or workshop to your needs.

To book, call in or phone the shop on 01 2810060.

Spring/Summer 2018 Classes

4 weeks €90- choose from:

Wednesdays 11 am – 1 pm, Thursdays 7 pm – 9 pm, Saturdays 11 am – 3 pm.

Each course usually begins the first week of each month but please check dates as some vary.

We do not currently have specific class titles or topics as we find our students are arriving to us at all levels of learning from complete and utter beginner to experienced people wishing to brush up a certain skill.

As such we tend to take people from where they are and hopefully move them along in their preferred direction! We cannot teach you everything, because we do not know everything so please check with us before booking if you wish to learn something in particular.

For absolute beginners, expect to make a small quilt, cushion or bag in your first 4 classes. Progress will depend on how much time you can spend on your project and how much you spend trying to decide on colours!

What we CAN teach you;

How to use your sewing machine, Fixing common sewing issues, Feeling in control of your machine sewing, How to sew straight (well, we can show you how but it’s on you after that!), Accurate cutting using rotary cutting tools, How to layer up a quilt sandwich, How to minimise bumps and folds in your quilting, Choosing a colour palette that you love, How to use precuts, Making bags, pencil cases etc, Making cushions, bunting, table runners, wall hangings, Inserting zips, Adding buttons and buttonholes and Lots Lots more
