Important Class Information

Our programme is made up of Social Groups, Themed Groups, and Classes teaching a particular technique or project.

Groups will vary in duration – some will be fortnightly for each school term, some six monthly and others a variety such us fortnightly for four sessions to work on a particular project. Some will require stitching to be done between classes.

Go to the website to see photos of most of the projects or better still pop into the shop to see them. Quilts always look so much better in real-life than in any photograph.

We do expect you to be working predominantly on our fabrics at our classes and groups.

Please make sure that you have purchased all your class needs prior to the day of the class. If you need help with fabric selection we would love to assist. We recommend that your cotton fabrics are washed before class to check for shrinkage and colour fastness.

We only confirm bookings with payment of the class fee. Once you have paid your class fee we will give you a needs list for the class or group. We cannot offer refunds on classes once the class has been confirmed as going ahead.

Watch our website and our weekly email Newsflash for additions to our Class Programme as new classes will be added as they are developed.

To make our groups function well we expect you to:

  • arrive on time for all groups and classes
  • let us know if you are unable to make a session at least the day before
  • turn off your cell phones or put them on silent mode
  • work on projects suitable to the set theme when there is one
