Maybe you bought a PFAFF Machine but you only know how to turn the machine on and off.

You have come to the right place!

At our brick and mortar store, we offer a wide variety of quilt, hand embroidery and PFAFF machine classes throughout the week and weekend. We often sprinkle in workshops throughout the year to keep things exciting and your creative knowledge growing!

Gail Hirst

Traditional and scrappy quilts are Gail's niche and she teaches them like no other. Gail has over 20 years quilting experience and loves to pass down her knowledge to eager students. Her skills at hand quilting are beyond magnificent and her ability to teach it extraordinary.

From small patchwork projects, to large king size quilts, this teacher will guide you from beginning to end.

 

Pfaff 1 on 1 Machine Workshop

Pfaff machines often have tons of locked potential because their owners did not have the opportunity to have proper training for their machine. As La Broderie is a Pfaff dealer, we wanted to bridge this gap and thus the Pfaff 1 on 1 Machine Workshop came to be!

During your two hour workshop, you will be taken through your machine step by step by a trained Pfaff technician Jan (who just happens to be a quilter too!) and Ria (a quilter for over ten years). This dynamic duo will help you reach your full potential with your machine in a calm but friendly atmosphere. 

The best part? These classes are kept small so that they can give you their best and uninterrupted attention. As a result, booking is essential and class days flexible.

Get the best out of your Pfaff, as perfection starts here.

 

Workshops Throughout The Year

 On top of all our classes, we often have extra specialised workshops throughout the year. This includes tye-dye fabric, how to embroider and upcycle clothing and bags workshops. These will be advertised on our Facebook page so be sure to follow us so that you do not miss out!
