Quilting With a Walking Foot
Quilters 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. 

After registration, 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.

Quilting With a Quilting Foot
If you are a quilter who: 1) already feels comfortable straight line quilting with a walking foot, or 2) has previously taken “Quilting With a Walking Foot,” and 3) is ready to expand your home machine quilting skills, then this workshop is for you!

Students will learn how to free-hand (without following drawn designs) free motion quilt, and methods for marking drawn designs to quilt a particular pattern. Instruction also includes how to start/stop quilting - what to do with those thread tails - and options for controlling the movement of the quilt under the needle.

It’s expected that students are already familiar with various types of sewing machine needles, fabric markers, battings, and threads.

Students will need to bring to the workshop a sewing machine that has:
  1. a free motion quilting foot or darning foot
  2. the capability of lowering or covering feed dogs.
  3. an owner’s manual
  4. been recently cleaned or serviced.
After registration, a complete supply list will be provided by the instructor.
