2019 Classes in the Said With Love Quilt Barn

We are offering a range of classes this year – some favourites will be back and a few new ones too!

Stay tuned to our newsletter, blog and social media for updates when we release new classes!

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.

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.

Bring along your sewing machine and notions and there will be plenty of space to cut and iron and layout your designs and even get some advice from others if needed.

And some great photo opportunities around our 100 year old country farmhouse to do some photo shoots of finished projects too.

Come along to this friendly class to learn how to make my Jelly Roll Patch pattern. It is a fabulous pattern for beginners to learn all the basics about quilting.

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 quilt!

To make sure that you finish your quilt top and back we will do this over two consecutive days (so make a weekend of it in our gorgeous part of the world! We can give you some accommodation suggestions) from 9:30am – 4pm.

You will need to bring a sewing machine to class (with all the feet and power cables and instruction manual!)

Class per person $200 and bring your own fabric (we will give you a list of requirements)

Or we can provide a full kit to make the pattern for an additional $160.

Charity Sew Day

We are working on having a charity sew day at the Quilt Barn in 2019.

This will be a day where we can make a small difference to somebody else’s life. We all know that a quilt can keep you warm, but as a sick child, a grieving parent or a victim of violence, receiving a quilt can bring some comfort and a realisation that others DO care.

Please contact me if you are interested in being involved in a day like this. I will post more information about the date, which charity and what you could do to assist when things have been finalised ๐Ÿ™‚

Choose Your Own Adventure

If our dates don’t suit you, we are happy to organise a time for you and your friends (minimum of 4 people) to do a class or have your own WIP get together!

We offer the following options in the ‘choose your own adventure’ :

  • Teddy Bear Cushion Class – a fun day class to make one of the cutest presents ever!
  • Maker’s Tote Two Day Class – a fabulous tote that will take all of your projects on the go!
  • Beginners Two Day Class – a fun way to learn all about how to make a quilt.
  • Your Own Sew Day – bring your own projects and be pampered in the Quilt Barn whilst you get stuff done!

Classes are $100 per person per day and Sew Days are $50 per person per day.

Please contact me to discuss your requirements! Would love to have you and your friends in the relaxing surrounds of the Quilt Barn.

Dates Don’t Suit You? Or want a gift voucher?

We can do a class for just you and your friends or organise a voucher for your loved one.
