Box making can be used to showcase your patchwork, quilting and embroidery. They can be all kinds of shapes, sizes and types of lid, but we will be concentrating on a rectangular box with a hinged lid, incorporating some foundation pieced patchwork on the lid.
We will start on the first day with learning the technique of foundation piecing. You will then incorporate this into a design for your box lid.
We will then learn the technique of how to produce a fabric covered box.
I have been stitching for as long as I can remember.
After completing a City and Guild’s Diploma in both Patchwork and Quilting and in Embroidery, I went on to teach City and Guilds Patchwork and Quilting, all at Westhope College.
