A highly regarded professional quilt designer, maker and teacher Stuart became a household name following his appearance on the hit BBC TV show Great British Sewing Bee.
Stuart also writes columns for several magazines, including Sew Magazine.
In a statement released by the council about the arrival of Stuart and the workshops they said;
“Stuart has picked three of his favourite projects to run as workshops for sewing enthusiasts and those keen to have a go.”
“Participants are invited to make a gorgeous Garden Charms table runner combining patchwork, appliqué and quilting; a beautiful seascape patchwork, using simple cutting and piecing; or the smart and modern messenger style bag.”
“The workshops take place on Saturdays 4, 11 and 18 July from 9am to 3.30pm. They are suitable for people with various levels of sewing skill.”
“All projects will include rotary cutting, machine piecing and quilting. Basic tuition is provided as well as guidance and support for the particular project itself. Remaining places are limited so early booking is recommended.”
Places are £20 per workshop. Information is provided about what participants should bring along, including their sewing machine.
These events accompany the popular exhibition about the history of the Women’s Institute ‘Everything YOU want it to be – The WI Inspiring Women for 100 Years’ on show until 1 August.
