Our regular classes are dynamic, sought-after and a true expression of the passion of a quilter. Each class is specifically designed to showcase the individual teacher’s unique style and technique and offers the student an interactive workspace to grow their own style. We also hold social quilting groups where our visitors are able to share their projects and discuss varying design ideas.
Marg George needs no introduction to the Cottage Quiltworks community. She uses traditional technique with her quilts yet goes beyond by adding a twist of quirkiness that gives her quilts a unique edge. Marg’s quilts have appeared in publications in Australia and overseas which highlights how incredible they are. Marg has a passionate following of quilters and the work that is produced in her classes is truly inspiring and an ode to the incredible nature Marg exhibits in her quilting and teaching styles.

Karen has been a quilter for over 27 years and a teacher for over 12. She adores quilting and her incredible passion is evidenced in her beautiful creations. Karen leans toward the English style of quilting that stems from her having grown up in the North of England. Karen specializes in designing quilts that are mostly hand-pieced (she does occasionally offer a machine pieced project for her students) and appliquéd in a colour pallet that produces a soft and delicate English gem.
Karen has regular classes on the 4th Monday and Tuesday each month.
