Class Description: 

Quilting is a colourful and addictive pastime that often involves cutting up large pieces of fabric into smaller pieces and sewing them together in a different way!  Sometimes even with a pattern!    

If you’ve never tried it and you want to, then this is the class for you.  If you’ve tried it and it didn’t quite work, then come along and have another go. 

Please bring basic quilting tools if you have them: a rotary cutter (45mm), a cutting mat and a quilt ruler – 4 ½” by 12” or 14” is a great size.  Please feel free to bring your own sewing machine as this is the machine you’re familiar with using.  Feel free to bring any quilting fabric that’s been stashed in your cupboard waiting for inspiration or a project that you’ve started and not finished.  All welcome!!

Classes will include:  

  • how to co-ordinate colours in a project
  • how to read quilt patterns 
  • cutting and matching fabrics 
  • ‘quilting terms’ you may not see in general sewing instructions
  • tools to make quilting easier 
  • creating patterns with basic block shapes

and most importantly, understanding that you can make your own ‘rules’ in your own projects! 

General Information:

Please wear closed shoes

Tea and coffee are available.

Cost: $10.00

Event FAQs

What is the cost of a class or group?

Prices for classes vary and are listed in the class information

Do I have to book, or can I just come along?

Classes and workshops must be booked online prior to attendance. The exception to this is the Charity Sewing Group and Knit and Natter Group.

Social and Charity meets are designed to help each other and work together. Mentors are available to assist you. However if you require one on one assistance please call 3155 3067 or email to: classes@thesewinglair.com.au prior to attendance so we can book in some time with an appropriately experienced mentor.

Do I need to bring or purchase supplies for my class?

This depends entirely on the class you are attending.  All information will be provided in the class information.

Can children attend my classes with me?

Well behaved children* are welcome to attend depending on the nature of the class. They are not permitted in the shop without adult supervision however. You are responsible for supervision of your child/ren at all times. Contact us to find out if your class is suitable for your children to come along with you.


*I am assured they exist…just like unicorns!

I’ve booked a class but now can’t attend. Can I get a refund?

We do not routinely offer refunds for classes however at our discretion we may offer you credit for another class at a future time. Cancellations must be received within 48 hours of your booked session. In extreme circumstances you can apply for a refund by emailing classes@thesewinglair.com.au and we will consider your request.

I booked for a workshop but the minimum attendees was not met. Can I get a refund?

In that instance we would offer a class credit or a refund (your choice) as we were unable to provide the service you purchased.
