The Avenue Quilt Along Always

#theavenueQAL

We have made our The Avenue Sewalong into one that you can join in whenever YOU want to!

You just sign up for the sewalong, pay the $5 administration fee and the weekly emails will start coming to your inbox with our tips and tricks and weekly guide to the pattern.

The sewalong takes 6 weeks and you will have a gorgeous quilt top by the end of it!

How the Sew Along Will Work

Head on over and sign up to join the sew along. You will receive an email (so check your junk / spam folder) with instructions on how to pay the $5 AUD administration fee.

Once the admin fee is paid you will receive the Welcome to the Sew Along email and then each week you will get all the tips and trips straight to your inbox. There are also some occasional videos!

You can join our Facebook Sewalong & Quilting Group (please don’t forget to answer the member questions!) and then you can post the pictures of your progress in there.

There are lots of wonderful people in our group that have a wealth of skills and knowledge, so don’t be afraid to ask a question!
