Westalee Rulers can help transform your free-motion quilting by enabling you to undertake creative free-motion quilting in a controlled way on your domestic sewing machine. Using the rulers will help you to stitch a large range of beautiful patterns and designs usually reserved for Longarm machines.

 

2 Day Sampler Set Course - Sat 10am-5pm, Sun 10am-3.30/4pm

A step on from the beginners 1 day workshop, the Sampler Set course is designed to help you get the most from the Sampler Set 1 (6 rulers). Each day we will explore three of the rulers in your Sampler Set plus the Starter ruler. You will be guided through a series of exercises and patterns, learn about marking out for accuracy and repetition and how to best manage a quilt on a domestic sewing machine.

 

With hands-on guidance and encouragement your confidence and knowledge will grow quickly, enabling you to explore and stitch out your our own designs in no time.

 

This course is designed to give you practical guidance and improved stitch technique rather than completing a finished item.

 

This course is NOT suitable for absolute beginners of Westalee Ruler work. I will not be covering basic machine set up. You should be comfortable fitting the Ruler Foot to your machine and able to stitch a basic straight line and curve as a minimum requirement.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

To attend this class you will need the appropriate Westalee Ruler Foot, 12" Arc Ruler, Spacing Gauge, Sampler Set 1 and an extension table for your machine.

Westalee Ruler Feet and Rulers can be purchased from Cotton Patch (www.cottonpatch.co.uk), where you will find a very useful ebook to help you to work out which is the correct version for your machine. Any query regarding the type of foot needed please contact Jayne on 0121 702 2840 or at mailorder@cottonpatch.co.uk and she will be happy to help. 

Once booked on a workshop Angela can offer you a discount code entitling you to 10% off Westalee products online at www.cottonpatch.co.uk

 

Cotton Patch also supply a range of Sew Steady extension tables for most makes and models of machines. These are made to order and imported from the USA and so can take up to 8 to 10 weeks to be delivered. Please bear this in mind if you need to order a table prior to attending a workshop.

CATERING & ACCOMODATION

'The Barn' Beefeater is onsite. Premier Inn has free parking and Wi-Fi.

For those staying over, Premier Inn offer a breakfast & dinner meal deal at the Beefeater restaurant. Should you prefer to leave the site for dinner there is a Miller & Carter restaurant 500m away and The Wharf Tavern, a canal side pub, just a little further. The picturesque Warwickshire village of Henley-in-Arden is also just a 10 minute drive away. 

 

Premier Inn do not charge single room supplements - the room rate is for the room, not per occupant (breakfast not included). 

 

If you are booking accommodation - may I suggest that you make a ‘fully refundable’ booking. This option is usually slightly more expensive but can be cancelled right up until 1pm on the day of arrival. The workshops need to be fully subscribed to in order to go ahead and I will confirm when this is the case. Closer to the time, you can then check rooms rates again and if you see one a little cheaper you can cancel your original booking and rebook at the lower price, as well as being able to cancel if you are unable to travel due to unforeseen circumstances or sickness yourself. https://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/hotels/england/west-midlands/solihull/solihull-hockley-heath-m42.html

I am required to pay for the venue hire in full 14 days prior to the course date therefore no cancellations will be granted at this late stage. 

 

CottonPatch are just 6 miles away from the venue.
