Meet the Teachers  - Jackson & Emm

Jackson is passionate about patchwork & quilting and longarm quilting and loves to share his knowledge to help others in their quilting journey. Jackson has been quilting for nearly 10 years and still has new ideas for quilts all the time!

Emm (AKA Emily Hedger) has been sewing and quilting for so long she has almost forgotten when it all began! Emm is fueled with a desire to constantly explore the possibilities of patchwork and quilting, and loves to share her experience, and her absolute love of all things fabric!

The advantage of having two passionate tutors in the classroom is you can see how two different quilters see the word of fabric and learn from each other, bouncing ideas, a friendly banter, and sharing the love of our craft. Our tutors ensure that everyone gets time with a tutor, as we nurture you through your learning journey.
