Various venues in the East Midlands, please contact me for
This course follows on from the City and Guilds level 1 patchwork
and quilting. Spread over two years, this course very creative and
rewarding but also requires commitment to individual learning.
You will produce two final pieces of work and a set of samples
along with a design folder.
The design section of the course will help you develop your design
skills by working with colour, line, texture and form. You will
experiment with different materials and techniques to create your
own unique designs. You will also have the opportunity to dye and
colour your own fabric. These design skills will provide the
foundation for the sampling section and your final pieces of work.
The final pieces may be in the form of a wallhanging, quilt,
cushion or a bag.
The course consists of 24 days split between once a month and one
weekend a year over two years, and individual work at home is
required to complete the projects.
Course requirements: Sketchbook, basic drawing and craft materials,
sewing machine, sewing kit, rotary cutter, self healing cutting mat
and quilters ruler. Full requirements will be given before each
The course cost for 2016 is 950 which includes the registration
fees. There is an additional cost at the end of the course for the

About Bev Mayo
I have been working with textiles since a young girl starting with
kits and magazines. In the 80’s I started designing hand knitted
aran garments which were sold though craft fairs through out the
country. On moving to Peterborough I began designing cross stitch
patterns for national magazines. This led me to the City &
Guilds courses and I completed what is now the certificate and
diploma Creative Embroidery courses in the early 1990’s. I have
recently completed the City & Guilds Patchwork and Quilting
Certificate under the guidance of Barbara Weeks.
I have worked in local Primary and Secondary schools as an Artist
in Residence and as a textile teacher, helping several schools
achieve their Art Mark.
I have been an active member of the Embroiderers Guild since the
early 90’s and joined the Quilters Guild 3 years ago.
I have had work exhibited both locally and further afield, I was a
finalist in the Charles Henry Foyle Award twice with my work being
exhibited at the Needle Forge Museum in Redditch.

After completing level one with Bev. I had fell in love with the
challenge of learning to quilt both the technical and design
elements and was truly inspired to continue on and achieve level
two. I am just about to finish year one of the level two course. As
always Bevs sessions have been well organised, encouraging, thought
provoking and a pleasure to attend. I would recommend Bev as a
tutor to anyone wishing to learn the basics of quilting or wishing
to move into the more complicated design / tech arena. Bev
certainly knows her stuff and I look forward to next years

I really enjoyed the course, although it was quite hard work with
lots of homework! I learnt a great deal, much of it out of my
comfort zone which was a reason for my doing the course, as it is
very easy just to stay with what you're familiar with.
Bev is a great tutor, very patient and explaining things clearly so
they're easy to understand and complete. She shows samples of items
we need to make, and helped us through all of the processes. I'd
recommend this course to anyone who wants to extend their knowledge
of patchwork and quilting.
