Beginning Quilting




A class to learn the fundamentals of quilting. This is a beginner class or a great refresher class for a seasoned quilter. Class will cover basic tools/notions, fabric selection and care, rotary cutting, accurate piecing and pressing, quilt layering and basting, quilting with a walking foot and binding.

 

Class will cover creating two patchwork pot holders and a patchwork table runner. Plan to finish your pot holders in class and get a good start on your table runner.

 

You must be familiar with your sewing machine and know how to thread and operate it.

 

Information regarding materials:

  • The class fee covers the pattern.
  • Details regarding the materials needed for the projects are on the back of the pattern you received when signing up for this class. You will want to bring a neutral sewing thread for piecing and a coordinating thread for quilting. I will be demonstrating machine binding using Dritz Wash Away Wonder Tape, so you may want to have that on hand, as well.

 

What to bring:

You will want to have your sewing machine and basic sewing supplies with you, along with the materials for the projects. The Creative Space has a couple cutting stations with cutting mats, and a couple pressing stations with irons - you’ll need to bring a rotary cutter and ruler(s). You will want to have fine sewing pins with you and if you have wonder clips and/or curved quilting safety pins, they will be beneficial. If your sewing machine has additional presser feet, such as: a patchwork foot and/or a walking foot, please have those presser feet with you. The projects can be completed without specialty presser feet, but they do make the projects easier. We will be working with multiple layers, so I would suggest a 90/14 needle (an 80/14 needle would work, as well). You may wish to have a notebook and writing utensil to take some notes.

We will have a casual break for lunch – you may want to bring lunch or snacks with you.

Before class:
You do not need to do any cutting or sewing before class, we will be covering
each step in class.
