Fabrications Workshops

Community Quilt – Jenni Smith


The Community Quilt is a modern heirloom, stitched by over 80 people so far.  Each block tells a story: locally woven cloth, remnants of a wedding dress, childhood pants! During Fabrications come and sew a small piece of this quilt, learn a new skill, work collaboratively and share your own textile tale. 

During Fabrications there will be 3 opportunities to contribute to the Community Quilt with drop in workshop sessions on:

Saturday 9th Sept at Community Clothing in Blackburn
