Quilt Academy Drop-in


The Quilt Academy have a passion for sewing quilts and other craft projects. For 2018 they will be sharing their skills in regular, structured sessions on Thursdays at Bell House. The Academy will teach both hand sewing and machine sewing. Two tutors will be on hand for each session and students will be able to work on anything from a quilted box through to a pillow, baby quilt or bag.  If students have carers, translators, therapists or family support, they are welcome to sit in on the sessions. We hope students will acquire a practical skill, socialise with others and make something beautiful to cherish.

The Quilt Academy is flexible and imaginative, so drop by for a cup of tea and meet us to discuss the possibilities. 

Quote from the Quilt Academy,

“Over the years, we have derived much joy - and inner peace - through making quilts, bags, clothes, pillows, table linens and more. We know others can do likewise with the right mentoring within a safe and welcoming space that Bell House is keen to provide”
