Thu 11 November

Venue: Exton Village Hall



Janet McCallum workshop: "Loosen Up"



Exeter Quilters members: £35.

Others: £40.

Please e-mail Barbara Janssen or to reserve your place and for further details of arrangements for the day and how to pay.

Although based on a log cabin, this is a complete contrast to the mini pieced workshop in October and as the title suggests does not involve any templates or measuring, just quick machine piecing. A good opportunity to use up scraps and maybe a final incentive to make a top or the cushion cover for the EQ scrap quillow challenge.

Thu 10 June

Venue: Your own sewing space



Helen Howes Zoom Workshop




Exeter Quilters members: £20 Others: £25.

For more information or to book your place, please contact Brenda Thomas.


This workshop follows Helen’s talk and slideshow on the evening of 9th June. 

It is called IMPROV for IMPROVERS and is suitable for anyone who has a rotary cutter, mat and a sewing machine. So this is for you whether you are a beginner or a veteran quilter!

Make some wonky stars and other interesting shapes. Perfection not required!




The workshop will run between 10am and 4pm with a break for lunch. Helen will give a short demonstration of 5 -10 minutes and then we will have a play ourselves for about 20 minutes. She will remain available to help during that time,  before repeating the process. I’m sure we will all end up with lots of interesting samples and new ideas. 

There will be a simple requirements list sent to you beforehand and a zoom link a few days before the workshop.
