Regular workshops are available Thornton Le Beans Village Hall. In addition, we meet once a month at Littlethorpe Village Hall near Ripon.


Hand appliqué designs including hares, doves and foxes, and a reverse appliqué design featuring the Kilburn Horse. Worked in needle turn method. Suitable to make into cushions, table mats or small quilts

Foundation pieced designs ~ using photocopies to produce accurate, simple and effective original blocks. Sailing boats, whales and beach huts. These are usually machine pieced.

Pieced designs, such as Independence Day and Little Red Schoolhouse.


This is just a small sample of plain navy’s designs ~ I would be happy to send more images. All our workshops are relaxed, informal and hopefully enjoyable events ~ I would be very happy to visit your Quilt Group for a half-day or full day workshop.




The ABC Quilt


This course is designed to cover the main basics of patchwork and quilting, in five sessions you should learn all the basics.  You should be able to finish a small quilt that incorporates the techniques of rotary cutting and piecing, hand applique, sashing, binding and hand quilting.



If you wish to use your own fabrics you will need at least 7 pieces approx 18”x 20” and a piece of calico/plain fabric approx 1/2m, or I have a kit, that includes what you need to make up the quilt top and costs £25.


Please contact me if you would like to tackle this by post, or join us at Littlethorpe or Thornton Le Beans.
