Introduction to Patchwork and Quilting
Bundaberg Quilters invite community members to take part in their Introduction to Patchwork and Quilting course.

Piece by piece, stitch by stitch, material is transformed into magnificent textile, ornamental artwork, or treasured keepsakes in Bundaberg Quilters’ introduction to patchwork and quilting course.

Bundaberg Quilters will hold the introduction to patchwork and quilting course starting with an introduction day on 13 February, and it's open to anyone in community interested in joining the local organisation.

Secretary Rosemary Morris said the 11-week course would provide participants with skills to create their own quilt.

“If you would like to learn some quilting techniques, but thought a big quilt was too much, come along and join our introduction to patchwork and quilting course,” she said.

“You will be shown a lot of handy tips to make this quilt by well-known quilter Michelle Marvig, taught by members of Bundaberg Quilters.”

Rosemary said it was a great opportunity for crafty men and women to learn how to stitch together cloth to create beautiful masterpieces.

“Each participant will learn to make a quilt using different techniques,” she said.

“The different components of quilting will be taught, from hand work to machines.

“There will be a taste of each quilting technique.”

Men encourage to give quilting a go

She said the introduction to patchwork and quilting course participants only required entry level quilting skills to take part, and she encouraged men to take part.

“It’s open to anyone who would like to become a member of Bundaberg Quilters,” Rosemary said.

“We definitely encourage males, as we have not yet had one-man brave enough to join, and I think men are more adventurous when it comes to quilting so we would love for them to take part.”

The hands-on course will be held on the second and fourth Saturday of the month, at Bundaberg and District Family Centre, Kensington Street.
