Workshop: Domestic Machine Quilting

  • Epworth Methodist Church 627 Gentleman Rd Ottawa, IL, 61350 United States (map)

Wendy Butler Berns will present Stitch to the Finish Line with Machine Quilting. The workshop will be a full day and is targeted at beginner to intermediate quilters.

Dig yourself out from under all those pieced tops and finish them with machine quilting. All aspects of machine quilting and free motion quilting including using a walking foot, a darning foot and working with those tantalizing threads. Practice will include ways of breaking away from using pre-determined quilting patterns and encouraging “you” to become the creator. Whether this is your first experience at machine quilting, or you are ready to branch into free motion, you will gain practical tips and confidence. The class will begin with using practice sandwiched kits, then move to discuss how to quilt a wall sized project you bring from home.

Cost: $50 (Includes lunch, bottled water and coffee)

To secure your spot, please mail your check to: Ann Savio, 2883 E. 777th Road, Utica, IL 61373. This workshop will open up to non-IVQG members on September 7.
