This basic skills class teaches you how to finish your quilts using your home sewing machine (be aware that not all machines were designed to machine quilt, but each machine is worth a try!). Stopping and starting your quiting threads, adjusting your tension, free motion and even-feed quilting are taught, along with needle and thread information. Learn confidence and techniques for basic machine quiting. In addition, ask all those questions and learn more about machine quilting, quilting design and transfer, layout, stippling, and machine quilting supplies. Try out different needles and threads to see how they work with your machine. We will use a pre-printed “Skillbuilder” fabric for practice or feel free to bring in a small project. Each class is different, so if you’ve taken machine quilting before and would like a refresher, this is the class for you.
