Places available at 2hr Beginner's Patchwork Class on Friday 20th May

This 2 hr class is suitable for beginners and will take place on Friday 20th May from 10am-12pm.

‘Half-square triangles’ can be hand or machine-pieced. This simple technique creates two squares at a time. Combine these with a light background fabric as shown above and you will soon have a 12 ½ inch block. You can use this block to make a simple cushion cover or continue to make enough to create a cot, lap or bed quilt like the one shown in the photo above.

Bring the following supplies, if you have them:
 100% cotton fabrics (Hickey’s, Pippa Blue, Rags for Linda are suppliers in Galway see links to these websites in the right-hand column of this website)
 ‘sharps’ sewing needles
 neutral (cream or light grey) cotton thread
 sharp fabric scissors.

But don’t worry if you don’t have any of the above I will have basic equipment to share, scraps you can use free of charge and ‘fat-quarters’ of fabric you can purchase for 2-3Euro each.

Class notes will be provided.

If you'd like to join this friendly workshop (coffee and biscuits provided!) contact me asap at there are only 2 places still available!


  1. If I only lived closer............ maybe you can do a tour soon :)

  2. Carrie,
    Perhaps the next time I hit Dublin we can use that beautiful studio in Clondalkin for a round the table skill-sharing session. I hear you guys are doing a replacement 'art in action' session soon! Enjoy!!
