If you need to make a quilt sandwich and would like to use my tables, please call to book a suitable time. 
£10.00 per sandwich plus your wadding.

I still intend to re-schedule all workshops that didn't happen because of Covid 19.
If you booked a workshop and paid a deposit, that deposit will be transferred to the new date.
If you prefer, you can have a credit note to spend your deposit in my shop.

What is a Sandwich day?
It's a day when I push my tables together in the classroom so that you can pin (sandwich) the 3 layers of your quilt, no matter how large or small it is, without having to crawl around on the floor and without having to spoil your best dining table with pin and tape marks!
Book time slots @ £10.00 per sandwich between 10am - 2pm, booking is required.
You can also use the tables to lay out the blocks you've made to decide on settings, or to see how many more blocks you need or... even better... to help you choose fabrics!
