Quilting classes Geelong

Jiddi’s Patch runs sewing classes, quilting classes, craft classes as well as children’s sewing classes. At Jiddi’s Patch we teach you a skill, not just a project.

All classes are suitable for the absolute beginner in sewing, right through to sewing enthusiasts. Our staff are dedicated to teaching all students the latest tricks, shortcuts, and sewing techniques. The class format is set to work at your own pace, and the class size is limited so that you can profit from the individual attention of your instructor.

Through the classes you will establish and extend your sewing, quilting and crafting skills, increase your knowledge and enhance your creativity which will last you a lifetime – and have fun while you do it!

Jiddi’s Patch has a huge range of sewing supplies and quilting fabrics in stock so you will have everything you need for your next class.
