Modern and Art Quilt Design Group with Bev Mayo 
This group focuses on contemporary, modern and art quilt designs and techniques. Starting with exploring ideas by sketching and colour exercises, we are developing design skills in relation to patchwork and quilting. There will be a theme each month with the aim of producing a small 'journal' quilt each month. 
A good understanding of patchwork and quilting techniques and be looking to develop as a quilt artist is where this group starts. New members are always welcome. 
If you are interested in joining the group, please phone 01234 824983 or look on our website – and search for Modern and Art.
