Beginner's Patchwork Classes Monday Nights 18.30-21.00

Half-square triangles can be used to make star-shaped blocks. This first class on Monday 26th September, focuses on a quick technique suitable for hand or machine stitching. It is very suitable for beginners.
This is the first 2.5hr class in a series of 5. You can do only one class (25Euro) or sign up for all 5 classes (110Euro) - it's up to you. Each class stands on it's own as one technique....but if you put them all together and you've got the makings of a sampler quilt - your very own family heirloom!
The class takes place at Groundworks Studios, Lyrr Building 3, Mervue Business Park, Galway. Phone 087 6193870 for more information.
