After Melissa’s presentation at our January 28th meeting many of you expressed interest in taking one Melissa’s workshops.
We have booked Melissa for a two, three hour virtual workshop sessions on Saturday, October 16th and Sunday, October 17th from 10-1pm.
As a participant in this virtual class, you will make samples of different quilting ideas that can be executed on the home sewing machine with a walking foot. Not everyone can afford a longarm quilter or wants to have someone else quilt their quilt, and not everyone enjoys free motion quilting. You will create samples of walking foot designs on small quilt sandwiches to help you understand what makes each design successful. We will also look at variations of the designs you stitch out. These samples will be a great reference for you when deciding how to quilt your next quilt. This class includes information on quilting all sizes of quilts on the home sewing machine. - ALL LEVELS
