BIO Margaret Mew

It’s such a buzz to start a new quilt… gathering up a pile of fabric possibilities and design ideas.  For me, it’s the fabric that comes first.  Fabric is what gets my fingers twitching to start something new.   Usually, it’s a gorgeous print I could use as a background; one that an applique design would sit on, but in a slightly faded or washed out way… or maybe sit on in a bold and stark way! It’s just as the mood takes me.  I work very impulsively and very rarely will I plan the entire quilt before starting.  I’d like to say that’s because I’m an artist who works organically, but truthfully, it’s just because I’m very impatient to get started.  I’ve learned over the years that when the fingers start twitching – ‘just begin’… I think that’s when the magic happens. And quilts have a way of working out if you always work with the fabrics you love.


Enjoy a hand stitching class with Margaret as she takes you through her tips to achieve accurate hand piecing and applique. Margaret’s aim is that you will enjoy and embrace hand piecing and hand applique as much as she does. And look at fabric, and use it a little differently than you may have before. Learn the essentials of template use and accurate fabric marking while working on your choice of Margaret’s designs.  You’ll learn helpful skills if you have struggled with any of the following … curved piecing, inset seams, smooth applique curves or points in the past, or applique stems. Choose a project from Margaret’s designs, either from her books or patterns; Your fabric requirements will be listed there for each quilt, but for class it is not usually needed to bring all the fabric for the quilt. Under Margaret’s expert guidance, you may wish to do a little shopping to add to what you have.
