How long do I have access to the course content?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like. There is no deadline you can enjoy your happy stitches at your own pace!
I'm a complete beginner, will I be able to make this?
The pattern itself, is written assuming that you have a basic understanding of sewing, quilting and patchwork and know for example, how to use your sewing machine.
That being said, we include lots of step by step instructions and diagrams.
To help you along the way, don't forget, you can also join our FREE Beginners Guide to Patchwork and Quilting Course and also our FREE Sarah's Favourite Embroidery Stitches Course. In both courses you will find professionally filmed 'little happy' video tutorials with close up and slow motion footage, with Sarah talking you through her favourite techniques and stitches.
Plus, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly ([email protected]) and we will do all that we can to help!
Finally, you can also find lots of FREE patterns and projects on our Blog 'A Little Happy Place' for you to try first.
I do not enjoy Needle Turn Applique does that mean I can not make this quilt?
Absolutely not!!! We firmly believe that you should use quilting techniques that you enjoy. So, if you prefer the Interfacing Method of Applique or Raw Edge Applique then that is absolutely fine. To help, or if you are undecided, you can find video tutorials for all the three types of appliques in our FREE Beginners Guide to Patchwork and Quilting Course. Plus, there are various FREE applique projects on our blog for you to experiment with and find which technique is your favourite.
I prefer to machine quilt rather than hand quilt, does that matter?
No definitely not....machine quilt as desired if you prefer!
I like to hand piece rather than use a sewing machine, is that ok?
Of course, however, please note that the instructions are written and assume that you are machine piecing and using a 1/4" foot.
Once I have purchased this pattern from you, can I share it with my family members, my friends or my quilt group?
The answer is no, the pattern purchased is for your personal use only. The reason for this is simple, we are a family business and the income that we make from designing and selling our patterns and kits, keeps a roof over our heads and supports our family. Therefore, redistribution, copying or reselling of this pattern is strictly prohibited.
However, it would make our day if you would recommend us to your friends and family so that they can also enjoy some happy stitches!
Can I use this pattern to produce items for my business?
Thank you for asking, however this pattern is for you to be enjoyed personally or for you to make as gifts for others. Please do not reproduce the pattern in anyway or sell items made from it. Business use of any kind is not permitted.
What if I am unhappy with my purchase?
Lots of love, care and attention, is put into everything that we do and we are sure that you will be completely happy with your purchase. If sadly this is not the case, all we ask is that you NOTIFY us of your reasons within 14 days of purchase. We will then always try our very best to resolve any issues or concerns that you may have. If after this, you still remain unhappy, then we will happily give you a full refund. Just email: [email protected]
