Machine Quilting for Beginners
Have you completed a few quilts and are not sure what wadding, thread, needles or what design to choose to complete your quilt. If this sounds like you, then this is the workshop for you.
All the basics will be covered in this workshop, including techniques such as straight line quilting, stitch in the ditch, curved lines, plus free motion designs such as orange peel, pebbles, feathers, clamshells, loops and many more.
This is a technique-based workshop. You do not need a top of the range sewing machine for machine quilting. However, you will need a darning foot that is suitable for your machine.
