Event description

Description

Create your own beautiful handmade quilted advent calendar that can be used year after year and fill it with the treats you really want!

In this workshop just outside Manchester City Centre we will cover a variety of sewing techniques, including creating box pleats with a pleating board, sewing with wadding for a quilted effect, sewing piping for a decorative border, and attaching quilting tabs so that your creation can be hung easily every December 1st. Many of these skills can also be used in quilting so this is a great way to dip your toe! We'll also sew on the lovely wooden handpainted stars to mark each date (depending on time available you may need to finish this part afterwards.)

While nibbling on mince pies and drinking some lovely warm drinks (all included) you will make a great decorative centrepiece for your festive home with 24 pockets that you can fill with anything from chocolate coins to Lego, to gin!

You will need to bring with you:

  • Sewing machine (limited number available if needed)
  • Basic sewing kit (scissors, pins, green and red thread)
  • Packed lunch.
  • The kit detailed below. (If you prefer to create your own kit please contact me for the dimensions needed.)

Kits are available for just £15 and include:

  • Front and back panels (quilting cotton)
  • Pocket fabric (quilting cotton)
  • Gold wooden hand-painted advent numbers
  • 2 meters gold piping
  • felt for hanging tabs
  • wadding
