The Duke of Edinburgh Youth Achievement Award is something GillyMac supports by offering free lessons in the skills of Quilting, Patchworking or Dressmaking to any young adult doing their Bronze or upper awards. Call me on 07818 551232 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange lessons.
Helping children and young adults learn about textile art is such a pleasure. Since 2014 I have been running a number of classes to encourage children and teens to become Young Quilters. This fantastic organisation is part of the Quilters Guild of the British Isles and is a great way to find out what great textile work is out there in your region and start to show your own work. For the past three years I have also taught children at the National Festival of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham – so watch out for my class there in 2018.
I am always brimming with ideas for classes … so watch this space as new classes will be released during 2017.
