I'm so glad I booked The Crafty Hen for our activity. From start to finish, everybody has been so lovely and helpful. All the girls thoroughly enjoyed it!
Patchwork Quilt / Cushion
A beautiful memento and keepsake of any hen party with all the hen's contributing to a special piece to be treasured forever by the Bride-to-be.
We will show you appliqué (fabric layering) and sewing skills, and bring lots of wonderful haberdashery (including ribbons, lace, bows, beads, sequins… )for you to use to decorate your patchwork squares. The squares can all be themed around the bride or your shared experiences with her. You can make your square as detailed or simple as you like, and make as many as you like!
We also bring a wonderful selection of fabrics and can select these around a colour theme if the Bride would prefer too. We work with you before the session to tailor the session to your group as much as possible.
The squares can be assembled into a patchwork quilt or cushion(s) after the session.
This workshop is also available as a vintage option with a selection of vintage fabrics, lace and buttons.
Cost: £32 per person (groups 18 or more £30 per person). Vintage: add £2 per head
. We can assemble the quilt for an additional £75 , or cushion(s) for £20 each and post it to the bride in time for her wedding day, or provide the materials for you to assemble it for no extra charge.
Session length: 3 hours
Group size: min 10, no maximum
Session includes: a wonderful selection of materials, all equipment and expert tuition.
Suited to: Anyone! This session involves basic hand sewing and is perfect for people with or without craft experience. For those of you who haven't done any sewing before we'll show you how. For more experienced sewers we'll show you some new and interesting skills to extend your knowledge.
