Patchwork is the original recycling craft and this course will show you how you can use shirts and ties creatively to make a beautiful patchwork full of memories; of people or maybe a particular occasion.

Christine will show you how to make a variety of you own designs which can be developed into a quilt or used for smaller throws or cushions.  Highly creative and great fun!

Suitable for beginners

  • Several shirts, preferably 100% cotton . A mix of checks, stripes, plain
