This 2-day machine quilting workshop is designed for beginning machine quilters as well as quilters with machine quilting experience who wish to review basic techniques and sharpen their skills. Participants will learn to prepare their stations and machines for quilting, adjust machine tension, and choose suitable quilting threads and needles. The majority of the workshop will be spent becoming familiar with and stitching a variety of walking foot and free-motion machine quilting designs and motifs: linear, grid, meander, texture/filler, focal, echo, and channel – on layered quilt samplers or on small quilts, if desired. Plenty of class time will be devoted to developing and practicing designs and motifs that most interest you and are appropriate for the style of quilts you enjoy creating.
Participants will need to bring many materials and some tools/equipment. CLICK HERE for the materials list for all three classes.
