Workshops and Talks


Workshops and talks are available! Whether you are a shop looking for inspiration, a sewing group, or a community looking to try something new I have a range of talks and workshops to suit most skill levels. 


Scrappy surgery: Bring in your scrap baskets! Lets talk about how to manage and what to do with your scraps. I will talk through colour choices, show my favourite roll technique and show you a variety of quilts that can churn through your scraps and give you confidence in building blocks of colour.  This workshop is set to a duration to suit your group. I will bring in my scrappy quilts to discuss techniques and be hands on to help start making rolls. (Excellent for retreats and Project Linus quilts)

Scrappy Quilt Workshops:  Choose to make ‘Scrappy Time’, ‘Roof Tiles’ or ‘March Winds’. These are minimum 6-day courses. The course includes viewing of quilt and breakdown of pattern instructions in simple steps. A printed pattern is included in the cost for each student attending. By the end of the course, attendees will gain confidence with using scraps, colour blocking and patchwork techniques.


I love talking about Scrappy Quilts. I will bring a series of quilts showcasing how to use a variety of sized scraps, how to organise them and the results you can achieve. From fun, fast ‘Scrappy Time’ to crazy quilting with crumbs for ‘March Winds’. Talk lasts 40mins to 1 hour but can be adapted if there are specific areas you wish to discuss.  I bring a selection of my scrappy quilts, my patterns and fabrics with me.
