People often ask what they can do with fabric scraps. Whatever your sewing preference, we all end up with lots of scraps which are far too good to waste.
In this class you will learn 3 different techniques including machine piecing and machine paper piecing to turn scraps into useable blocks that could then be made into placemats, bags, cushions, entire quilts or more.
You will discover ways to use scraps of different sizes and shapes, from as small as 1 inch.

Students are welcome to either bring their own machines (bring your manual too!) or use the Backstitch machines for free. We will be teaching using a 1/4 inch foot which the Backstitch machines are equipped with.

Materials List:
You will need to bring a selection of scraps in a variety of sizes, no stretch fabrics please. To add to your stash, please see our Quilt Fabric section.
A couple of larger pieces of fabric and some offcuts of quilt wadding (both approx 10x10cm)
If you happen to have any selvedges squirrelled away then bring those too!
You will also need thread suitable for piecing. We recommend Aurifil 50wt
If you would like to buy any of the above items from the shop we are happy to help you choose on the day, or pop in beforehand.
