One of the most feared parts of making a quilt is the quilting. New sewing machine features makes it easier than ever to achieve awesome results with much less practice!

*Reminder, Quilting is not just used to make a Quilt. Many Garments and Home Dec projects are quilted!

Here are just a few of the things we will discuss in this 3 part series of classes that will make quilting much less scary.

  • What batting do I choose?
  • What thread is best?
  • How should that thread spool off through my machine?
  • How do I hold my layers together? How do I mark my quilt?
  • How do I set-up my machine for straight line quilting and free motion quilting?
  • How do I achieve a consistent stitch length if my feed dogs are down? 
  • How do I set-up my machine to use the ruler templates!
