Domestic Machine Quilting: Straight Ahead & Around The Bend

  • Sugar Sand Park Community Center 300 South Military Trail Boca Raton, FL, 33486 United States (map)

This exciting workshop will cover everything you need to know about quilting on a domestic sewing machine - both free motion style (FMQ) and straight line quilting!

Morning: Domestic Machine Quilting: Straight Ahead 

Linda's domestic machine quilting set-up at home.

Learn to use a walking foot to achieve beautiful results on your home sewing. Straight lines and “organic” quilting can be as effective as more elaborate quilting. Class will include a review of machine set-up, including needles and threads; and a review of fabric markers, and battings.

Afternoon: Domestic Machine Quilting: Around the Bend

Quilters will learn free motion quilting with a darning foot or free motion quilting foot. We also discuss how to choose quilting designs.
