Introduction to Machine Quilting


In this beginner course, our Guild’s own Karen Power will teach you how to quilt different patterns using your domestic sewing machine. You will learn how to use your walking foot (or dual feed) by practicing your technique on Nine Patch charity quilts that are prepared and ready to quilt.

 

As an added bonus, watch a live demo of different sandwiching techniques including basting, clamping, pinning and spraying.

 

Space is limited!! Sign up at the October meeting or email me at caren@intelliware.com.  This is going to be a GREAT class to learn a new technique or improve your skills!! You don’t want to miss this one!!
