Oakshott Fabrics now has a new range of fabrics. The 'All-Year English Garden' range brings the garden and its colours inside, whatever the season.

You will have the chance to spend one day with Valerie Nesbitt working with feature fabrics and one day working with Jennie Rayment with very clever patchwork shapes
Jennie is a world renown quilt teacher, lecturer, author of nine quilt books and numerous patterns. From Houston to Qatar, Durban to Melbourne, Auckland and many other international cities, Jennie has wowed them all with her superb teaching style and hilarious lectures all laced with wit, charm and professional expertise.
Valerie is the founder and Creative Director of justhands-on.tv , as well as our very own ‘Queen of Scrap’. She founded Creative Quilting, a quilt quilt shop in Hampton Court, where she still teaches to this day.
Angela Madden is an internationally recognised quilter, teacher and author. After working for many years as an Occupational Therapist, Angela gained a degree in adult education and changed direction to pursue her interest in patchwork and quilting.
Anne has sewn all of her life, prolifically for the last 25 years. She works across a wide range of patchwork and appliqué techniques and designs -- from the Navajo blanket quilt that includes simple and advance techniques to simple cushion designs.
Carolyn is an accomplished quilt maker, teacher and author of several books and patterns. Carolyn has been sewing quilts for over 20 years and just loves using up scraps. She is constantly inspired by vintage quilt blocks she finds on her travels and she brings them up-to-date with modern construction techniques – stitch n’ flip and Quilting on the Go are two of her favourites.
With over 25 years as a textile designer and teacher, Janet regularly hosts talks and workshops, focusing on the design process and creative techniques she uses - - especially drawing with your sewing machine and free motion machine appliqué.
Julia loves making miniature quilts on a variety of themes - especially small, pictorial quilts with little villages and sea sides. Her quilts have been inspired by travel in the UK & the Mediterranean. She also loves Christmas themed patchwork & quilting. This is reflected in many of her designs for wall hangings, mini quilts, garlands, tree decorations and wreaths.
Helen creates patchwork designs and write patterns so you can make your own unique, lovely things. She loves using three dimensional allusions in her work, and is an avid follower of the Modern Quilt Movement.
