Memory Bear Workshop!

The very talented Janet Goddard will be teaching her ‘patchwork’ bear as a special reminder of your baby’s first years, to mark a special occasion or in memory of a special loved one. In this workshop you will transform pre-loved clothing or your special fabric into an everlasting keepsake. Janet is a very experienced tutor teaching regularly at the Festival of Quilts and at the Knitting and Stitching show and has also published books showcasing some of her wonderful designs and appeared in several magazines - Fabric HQ are super excited to welcome Janet to the Make Studio.

The bear is roughly 12" in height and this workshop is suitable for confident beginners and beyond.
