If you are curious as to how to learn about Patchwork & Quilting, I am pleased to be running a can do taster Patchwork & Quilting workshop at Altrincham Open Studios on Sunday 8th September from 10-4pm, priced £55. Click here to book.
In this taster Patchwork & Quilting workshop Lisa Watson (that’s me!) will introduce you to hand stitched patchwork & quilting techniques and throughout the day talk through how you can develop your P&Q further at home, by hand, or on a sewing machine.
Takeaways from this days workshop are a hand-stitched patchwork pin cushion and a suffolk puff brooch. Lots of useful hand outs are provided, as well as all the materials. However, if you are a sewer, please do bring your sewing kit and fabrics with you to use for a truly personalised approach.
Bring a packed lunch for an half an hour break at midday. Tea and coffee and cake will be provided throughout the day.
Only 6 people max for this workshop, so book your place early.Read More
A cornucopia of quilts were to be found at The Festival of Quilts 2019 last week.
Quilters from around the world descend on the NEC in Birmingham this time every year to display their awesome quilts, network and celebrate all things quilts. I visited on the opening day and it is just the tonic of colour, pattern and textures to inspire and motivate. Some quilts delight, some are more challenging, or thought provoking, all are beautifully executed in stitch and cloth. Here are my quilt highlights;
Enjoy your week, whatever the Great British summer weather xRead More

I am so pleased with my beautiful quilt. The colours are lovely and they tone in really well with our bedroom colours.
MARION – NOVEMBER 15
Lisa is very proud of her quilts and justifiably so. I have never seen any like them, photos do not do them justice.
