Are you new to sewing but want to brush up on your skills? Here's an experience that's perfect for beginners and intermediates alike...

Everybody loves beautiful bunting for any occasion. If you love sewing, you'll seriously love making this bunting - all you need to know is how to sew a straight line!

Beginners, this workshop's a great way to start sewing and get you up to speed. Intermediates, get ready to have some fun and challenge yourselves by making something new. Harmony Quilt Company is a family-run business that prides itself on pretty fantastic quilts. Make bunting under the guidance of their wonderful team and soak up all their knowledge.

Spend a lovely few hours in their bespoke quilting studio in the picturesque village of Chipping Sodbury. All equipment will be provided or 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 and instructions to make your bunting. As colours are down to personal preference, fabrics will not be included. There will be a small selection of bunting kits available for purchase. In addition to bringing fabric for your bunting flags, you'll need to bring fabric for making the tape from which the bunting will hang from.

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, squash, water & biscuits will be available throughout the experience. Let your hosts know if you have any allergies or dietary requirements, so they can make sure you are catered for and feel right at home!

About Harmony Quilt Company Ltd

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.

Michelle has been sewing/crafting since forever!!! Spending time sat by her mothers sewing machine watching her do piece sewing for a local dress company as a small child. Always sewing/knitting/crocheting and embroidery – always busy creating. Michelle has done most crafts from printing, pottery to woodturning but always returning to her love of sewing. Taking up quilting 15 years ago and got completely hooked. She found that quilting is wrapping loved ones in a warm hug with love in every stitch. She loves sharing her passion for creating and bring different crafts together within quilting.
