It's time to drop the dogs, friends, and learn the art of free-motion quilting!
WE SUPPORT YOU!
The Cloth Pocket Studio is proud to offer Introduction to Free-Motion Quilting where one will learn how to:
- Lower the feed dogs and attach the darning foot.
- Control speed and proper hand positioning.
- Design development and execution
- Popular free-motion designs
- How to free-motion larger pieces
- Troubleshooting and avoiding the dreaded "eyelashes"
This class will be taught by Zohreh Daly, avid quilter, and resident goofball.
The course will take place over two days for three hours each (six hours total). It is designed to accommodate 4-8 students. We won't be working on a particular project in this class but honing our skills. It is recommended that you bring in scraps of quilting cotton and batting to work on rather than an existing project.
Prerequisites: You need to be able to operate the basic functions of your machine independently. (e.g. winding a bobbin, sewing a straight-ish line, changing out your feet, etc).
It is recommended that you bring a machine if you own one so that you may learn to sew on the machine that you'll be using the most. This is especially true for this course as free-motion settings on machines vary.
- Select pattern size that most closely corresponds to your measurements (information is located in the instruction booklet with pattern).
- Cut out front and back bodice pieces from muslin, use pins to hold the fabric layers together and mark the point and the legs of the darts.
- Remember to bring the remaining muslin fabric and pattern with you to class.
