The course is divided into four lessons (modules), available for individual purchase at any time during the year. Each module comes complete with course notes, colour photos and step by step instructions for working samples, all arranged in plastic sleeves. Purchase of each module includes written assessment for modules returned within six months of purchase.

Samples for modules 1-3 will be worked on quilter's muslin, while module 4 is worked on silk dupion.

 Each sample and its comments will be returned to you, allowing you to build up a reference file of finished samples that will help when you attempt all those lovely projects in books and magazines.
