Are you new to quilting but don't know where to begin? Here's an experience that's just the right fit for beginners and intermediates alike...
Everybody knows Santa likes to fill stockings on Christmas eve - these are beautiful to hang up for decoration and be filled with goodies from The North Pole. If you love sewing, you'll seriously love making this quilted Christmas stocking.
Beginners, this workshop's a great way to start quilting and get you up to speed. Intermediates, get ready to have some fun and learn to make something new. Harmony Quilt Company is a family-run business that prides itself on pretty fantastic quilts. Make a quilted Christmas stocking under the guidance of their wonderful team and soak up all their knowledge.
You'll be provided with various pre-cut Christmas fabric kits for you to choose from. If you would prefer to bring your own festive fabric, you're welcome to. Your hosts can cut it into shape before the workshop.
Spend a lovely few hours in their bespoke quilting studio in the picturesque village of Chipping Sodbury. All equipment will be provided, but feel free to bring your own if you prefer (all machines need to be PAT tested). Please let your hosts know if you would like to use one of their machines.
You will be supplied with a printed pattern, instructions, and wadding to make your stocking. Bring a packed lunch or walk to Chipping Sodbury's lovely high street to grab some lunch once you have finished. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, squash, water & biscuits will be available throughout the day. Let your hosts know if you have any allergies or dietary requirements, so they can accommodate you.

My name is Natalie, I’m the owner and quilter at Harmony Quilt Company. I’m very fortunate to follow in my grandmother’s footsteps in having an exceptional gift for all crafting, especially sewing and quilting. My grandmother, affectionately known as Nanny Smith, taught me to make curtains from an early age, but I was always making something or other with her off cuts, and my passion was born.
I have over 45 years sewing experience and 7 years “serious” quilting experience, and quilting is my passion. I love the piecing but struggled with the quilting on my domestic machine. February 2018. Enter the HQ Amara, a 20-inch longarm machine with a 10-foot HQ Studio2 Frame, with the Pro-Stitcher Premium software, and all my dreams were answered, I could easily quilt all my unfinished quilt tops and now there’s not one UFO on the premises.
Time to make my passion my job. And once again, another birth, Harmony Quilt Company Ltd! To offer an affordable, computerised, edge to edge, long arm quilting service to my fellow quilters, who love piecing too.
Natalie is Harmony Quilt Company's founder. She's a longarm quilter, with her grandmother's gift for crafting and sewing. Natalie has over 45 years of sewing experience and seven years of quilting experience. Quilting is her serious passion.
