Seminole Patchwork live online class

How to make seminole patchwork

During this zoom workshop you will learn how to make your own piece of seminole patchwork. You will then turn it into a fabulous cushion with a professional lapped zip back. Our step by step instructions with all our normal tips and tricks will take you through this project with ease.

This is a charming patchwork technique. It which works well with combined colours but can look equally great with shade variations too. I’ll be showing you how simply you can put together such a sophisticated  piece. Be warned,  you’ll be making more before you know it.

Suitable for beginners upwards.  I’ll also show you how to insert a professionally lapped zip.  Or, you can use your patchwork for a variety of other projects.

Not around or worried you’ll be too slow… don’t worry a full video recording will be available for you to watch at your leisure afterwards.
