Introduction to Free Motion Quilting

Yes, you can quilt your own quilts on a domestic sewing machine! Learn the basics of needle and thread selection, basting and machine set up and find out how to achieve a consistent stitch length and tension. Several stitch patterns will be explored, including stippling and stippling with attitude, wavy lines, pebbles and combining designs. You will get plenty of time to play and have fun in this three hour class! When you are finished, you will have a sampler filled with free-motion designs. (You must bring a sewing machine that allows for the feed dogs to be lowered - or you can rent one of ours!)

Requirements: Knowledge of your sewing machine, including how to drop the feed dogs and attach a quilting foot.
