Beginning Free Motion Quilting

Instructor:  Faye Hoch

Saturday, October 19th, 2019

10am - 4pm


Class Description:

This will be a "stress-free" environment.  It's only practice.  Start simple, learn what's working for you and what isn't.  Then improve your skills in a direction that is right for you. 

I remember what it was like to struggle learning free motion quilting.  I hope to be able to assess your strengths and weaknesses and put you on an individual path for improving your skills.  We're all a little different.  The first steps are the hardest.  Leave this class with a game plan to help you improve.

Class Supplies:

  1. Three quilt sandwiches.  One 10" x 10".  Two at 20" x 20".

  2. Make your sandwiches from fusible batting  (I prefer and sell Hobbs 80/20) and solid or solid-like fabrics.  We sell crib sized packages at the store.

  3. Bring one solid and one variegated thread that work well together.  The color should contrast with your fabric color.  Wind one bobbin with the solid thread.

  4. Make sure your machine is in good working order.

  5. Free motion foot.  Most machine manufacturers make more than one foot.  Talk to your sewing machine dealer to make sure you have one that works well.  The darning foot that comes with most machines is usually not the best choice.  Invest in a foot that is made for free motion quilting.

  6. A mechanical pencil and paper (copy paper is good) for notes and drawing.

  7. Chaco marker.

  8. Quilting ruler- trim rulers work best.
