Intro/Beginning Free Motion Quilting, Friday, March 3rd, 1:30 – 4:30
March 3 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm$50.00
The class will cover how to prepare the quilt backing for quilting, how to select designs, audition
and transfer designs to your quilt. Should I stitch in the Ditch is often a question beginners have, we
will discuss the do’s and don’t s of quilting in the ditch. We will also explore with dierent threads and
what size needle to use for your thread choice. Last but not least, what is a quilt without batting?
and since the industry has so many choices which we will explore batting as well.
If you have a quilt top and would like to discuss “How do I quilt that” feel free to bring it to class.
The first Friday and Saturday of each month Miss D’s offers you an additional option for expanding your quilting experience. Iris, an award winning quilter and Handi Quilter Certified instructor, will be here for hands on quilting. On Friday afternoons, it will be all about free motion quilting on the long-arm for anyone with the desire to learn hand guided, ruler work or simple projects on a long-arm . On Friday afternoon you will review topics from the prior month and will be guided through new projects that are intended to expand your skills.
The class is open to everyone regardless of machine brand you own or experience level. Iris will discuss various topics throughout the day including thread, tension, fabrics, patterns, rulers and various techniques. She will be able to answer your questions which are machine independent.
This is a hands-on class for anyone who is new to hand guided long-arm quilting, so be prepared to practice what you learn in class. Sometimes there might even be some fun homework assignments.
Don’t have a long-arm but want to learn about them to make a well-informed decision before buying (remember, we are here to help with your purchase with great prices and support) or interested in renting our long-arm to complete your own quilt then this class is for you.
