The Hackney Quilter

Make a Modern Quilt 4 week course - January 2024

Make a Modern Quilt 4 week course - January 2024

Brighten up January with a modern quilting course. Join Anna of The Hackney Quilter at Shoreditch Design Rooms in January to make your very own patchwork quilt. Over four mornings you will learn the essential skills to make a full sized quilted throw using her best selling pattern, the Tor quilt in the company of interesting fellow makers.

9.30am - 1.30pm, January 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th

Skill level: This course is suitable for complete beginners as well as more experienced sewists looking to try patchwork and quilting.

Anna will guide you through all stages of making a patchwork quilt from beginning to end to ensure you have all the skills needed to take home a finished full sized quilt.

Techniques covered:

  • How to use a quilt pattern
  • Choosing fabrics
  • Suitable tools
  • Prepping and cutting fabric 
  • Accurate machine piecing techniques
  • Basting methods
  • Hand quilting
  • Binding methods

Materials needed: You will need to bring your own fabric for the quilt top and quilt back. A copy of the quilt pattern as well as all thread and batting will be provided. There may be some light homework depending on progress so you may need access to a basic sewing machine between classes. Tools will be available to share but you may also like to bring your own. 

A full list of tools and guidance on fabric will be sent to you after sign up.  

At the end of the course you will have completed a full sized throw quilt which you will love cosying up in year after year. You'll also learn the mindful art of hand quilting which is the perfect addition to your winter well-being toolkit.

The workshop will be held at Shoreditch Design Rooms, E2 8NG. For more details and to book your place, click HERE

Refreshments will be available throughout the morning.

  • "Anna managed to give each individual a good amount of one to one time. She has a wealth of knowledge of the quilting world and so this intimate, informal setting was the perfect introduction and Anna was the perfect guide!"

  • “Thank you for a brilliant day. I'd had low confidence about approaching my first quilting project on my own, but after the workshop I feel really capable of starting something on my own, making design choices and working through the steps to make them come to life. It really gave me the boost I needed to work on my own project.”

  • "Honestly, I enjoyed it all. Brilliantly taught, methodical and patient, never hurried. The venue is great. The other people on the course were interesting and nice to be around. I'm really pleased with the quilting I did."

  • "It was such a great day! Anna is a calm, encouraging and thoughtful teacher, and managed everyone's different learning styles and levels really well."
