At Quilters Quest we offer weekly classes. These are suitable for quilters of all skill levels, from beginner to advanced. At these classes you choose your own project and will receive guidance on how to complete it; at the same time, you will have the opportunity to learn a varied number of techniques used in patchwork and appliqué. Classes are available during the day and in the evenings. Our class members are entitled to 10% discount off fabrics (sale fabrics excluded). If you do not already attend our classes but would like to, contact us & we can add your name to the waiting list.
Our Spring term started week beginning Monday 22nd April 2013, runs for 10 weeks, and costs £60.
We will be running classes every Tuesday evening in August from 7 - 9pm; £25 for 4 weeks. Call us on 02890 454745 to reserve your space; a £15 deposit is required.

Friday Sewing Club
The Friday Sewing Club is held between 10am and 4pm in Quilters Quest every ... yes, you guessed it, Friday. Come along and work on your own project(s) whilst enjoying the craic with others. The cost is £5 for the day and this includes as much tea and coffee as you can drink. No tuition is included on a Friday. Sewing machines can be hired at a cost of £1 per day. Please contact us to check availability as this is a very popular club.
One-day workshops run from 10am until 4pm and cost £25, apart from the half-day Binding workshops from 10 am - 12:30pm or 1:30pm - 4pm, at a cost of £10. Fees do not include materials. A £15 deposit (£5 for Binding) is required at the time of booking to secure each place – this is non-refundable if cancelled less than seven days before the workshop and a replacement is not available. Quilters Quest reserves the right to cancel any workshops; in the unlikely event that this happens we will notify you as soon as possible and all deposits will be refunded.
