2020 Classes in the Said With Love Quilt Barn

We have some great new classes this year!

For the first time we are offering a class to make the Amy Butler Weekender Bag as well as both the Take a Stand bag and Running With Scissors patterns which are great for taking to retreats and sew days. There will also be class to make our Charm Framed pattern.

And we are going to have another WIP Weekens, another Jelly Roll Rug class (they are so popular!) and a brand new beginner quilting class!

And if you have something you would love to learn, get in touch with us – we might be able to get someone to come and teach us all!

Customer Comment:
“Just love your cottage and the tranquil environment.”

Where are our classes held?

Come and enjoy time in the Victorian countryside just outside of Daylesford for your class.  When you book in for your class we send you our address and instructions on where to find the Quilt Barn.

Our classes are held in our newly built barn next to our 100 year old country farmhouse. The Said With Love Quilt Barn has a spacious, light, air conditioned (and heated) class room and extra attic space if needed. As a bonus we have a small lake and ducks just outside the huge picture windows. We are surrounded by rural farming countryside on every side.

It is an idyllic place for a day with friends learning some new skills and taking home an almost completed project! Lunch and tea/coffee and afternoon tea are included in our classes and, weather permitting, we have it out by the lake.

Amy Butler Weekender Bag Class

This one is going to be epic!

Over two Sundays in March (the 15th and the 29th) we will be taking you through all the steps of how to make this iconic bag.

Lots of tips and tricks to make it easier and quicker.

There will be some pre-homework and the two week gap between the classes will give you time for any catch up required so that we start the second day together.

You will just have the lining to handsew in left by the end of the two days!

Go scrappy or all one fabric, these bags look fabulous.

Morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch is provided.

There will also be a kit and pattern available.

Beginner Quilter Class

Come along to this friendly class over two days to learn how to make a small cot sized quilt.

We take it nice and slow and go through everything from fabric selection, cutting, sewing a 1/4″ seam and all the things you need to know about patchwork whilst putting together this fun little quilt!

To make sure that you finish your quilt we will do this over two Saturdays, two weeks apart.

This will give you some time to do some catch up if needed between the classes.

You will need to bring a sewing machine to class (with all the feet and power cables and instruction manual!) and we will provide the fabric requirements or we can provide a full kit as an optional extra.

Take a Stand Project Bag and Running With Scissors Notion Satchel

These two bag patterns go well together so we are having classes for them both this year!

Come along to one class or both!

Take a Stand is a great project bag that you can take to sew days and retreats with friends.

Running with Scissors is the matching tools and notion satchel type holder that, when are at your sew day, opens up and folds over the Take a Stand project bag so you have all your requirements close at hand without taking up too much space!

The classes are both for a two day weekend and we will go through all the steps so you can learn new skills such as putting in zips, working with Soft and Stable, sewing with mesh and vinyl.

Come along and have lots of fun learning in a relaxed environment!

A delicious lunch and morning and afternoon tea are included.
