Portfolio of Workshops and designs that I teach

Sarah Payne

All of my quilt workshops use sewing machines (unless specifically mentioned below). Quilting classes will also require the use of rotary cutter, a standard size quilting ruler and a mat. I often make use of EZ acrylic rulers by Simplicity – which is the brand that I demonstrate on Create & Craft. Other brands are of course available – and I will state in the requirements list if a specific ruler is needed. If you do not wish me to use these rulers then please let me know and I may be able to offer a variation where attendees draft their own templates. However I will need to know this at time of booking.

I always include full instructions and finishing guide (layering, quilting and binding) so that all attendees will be able to finish their quilt once they return home. 

If any of these classes are of interest, please let me know!

Machine Embroidered Purse

(zoom image)

Create this charming purse using fabric scraps, lace and ric rac, and a simple flip & sew technique.

Not all of us have the time to create hand embroidered wonders, but this delightful little bag can be made in very little time at all!

Use scraps of fabric, lace and ric rac, a bit of wadding and a simple flip and sew technique to create this charming purse.

You do not need a big fancy embroidery machine, most basic machines have at least some fancy stitches on it that you may never have used before. Get to grips with this and make a little gift that is sure to delight all who see it!

  • Tools required – sewing machine.

Playing with Circles – Zen Quilt

Inspired by traditional Japanese zen garden designs, this class will de-mystify how to work with appliqued circles.

These gardens are places of calm and quiet contemplation, and this quilt reflects those sentiments. This wall hanging can be used to showcase some of the beautiful Chinese and Japanese themed fabrics available, and it works equally well with modern furnishing designs.

Tools required – standard rotary cutter, ruler & mat & sewing machine. EZ Circle ruler is also useful.
