Workshops


Leonie's workshops are based around the use of our products, the Adjustable Rulers and Templates. Each workshop will have you making a block with points that meet and the correct size without trimming.
Leonie believes that everyone can achieve exellant results with accurate cutting, using a true scant quarter inch stitch and pressing not ironing. You should not need to trim your pieces after they have been sewn or square up your blocks.


Our Workshops cover the Kaleidoscope, Double Wedding Ring, Pinwheel Block, Dresden Plate, Disappearing Hour Glass, Epsilon Star and the Puzzler.




While our products are available directly from us, I would encourage you, where possible to buy from Patchwork Stores stocking our products, after all they do have the fabric, threads and most other bits and pieces you might need. If you are unsure where to get them, please drop us email and we will get back to you with a location of the nearest supplier.


Crossroads Pattern

Happy Piecing

Bill and Leonie West
