Quilting with a Walking Foot    NEW!

Quilters find are finding it extremely rewarding and economical to make an entire quilt - from piecing to quilting to binding - entirely by oneself. During this five hour-plus workshop, you’ll learn how to get started quilting your own quilts.

Students will learn to how to prepare their home sewing machine for straight line walking foot quilting, and will need to bring to the workshop a sewing machine that has:
1. a walking foot, or the capability of engaging a dual feed or even feed foot
2. an owner’s manual
3. been recently cleaned or serviced.

Instruction also includes a review of how to properly prepare and baste a quilt sandwich, and the suitability of types and brands of sewing machine needles, fabric markers, batting, and threads.

The instructor does not provide tech-support for your sewing machine, so make sure you are familiar with the basics of your machine, and have the appropriate quilting foot (see your dealer if you are not sure).

A complete supply list will be provided by the instructor. Students do not need a quilt top for this workshop.

A 45-minute lunch break is allowed.
