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 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 the button below to find our upcoming classes.

My particular passion is Free Motion Quilting and I have 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? Drop me a line to discuss your needs.  


COVID-19 Statement

Due to the current global pandemic all classes and class series remain online for a little while longer, altough I hope to see you in person soon. Classes and workshops are held over Zoom, using a variety of visualisers so you can see exactly what I'm up to!
I hope everyone is keeping safe, remember that sewing is one of those wonderful activities which acts as a meditation and can really aid our mental well-being, so stay home, stay safe and
Keep Calm and Carry on Sewing!
