About Trace Design

Hello, lovely quilters, I'm Tracy Wardle of Trace Design, great to meet you! 

Originally from South Yorkshire in the UK, I've been quilting since moving to East Cork from The Hague in 2007….I joined a quilting group to make friends (which , of course I did!) and was instantly hooked.

I studied for my City and Guilds Certificate in Patchwork and Quilting with the marvellous Emer Farrell in Cork, completing it in 2018. I really wanted to share my passion for this wonderful and addictive art form and began teaching classes soon after qualification.

I offer a variety of patchwork and quilting workshops from the beginner level and upwards - click on the button below to find our Class and Workshop Programme and check out upcoming classes.

My particular passion is Free Motion Quilting and I have also developed a range of workshops and class series to share this passion with you and help you gain confidence and quilt your own fabulous quilts.

Would you like me to come to your group to teach a class? Click on the button below for the Bringing My Classes to You page to see the menu of classes available and drop me a line to discuss your needs.  

COVID-19 Statement

As we begin to open up and go about our daily lives in a more normal fashion I am delighted to welcome you back into my actual classroom! I will continue to offer some classes and  online alongside in-person classes for a while, if these continue to be popular.
Please do not come to an in-person class if you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms of Covid. 
Most importantly...
Keep Calm and Carry on Sewing!
