Beginner Quilting Workshop
Learn modern quilting techniques! This one-day workshop will cover all the basics of assembling, machine-quilting, and finishing a small quilt.
In one five-hour session, you'll learn:
- Understanding quilting materials, including batting and binding.
- How to assemble a "quilt sandwich" and baste or prep it for quilting
- How to quilt on a standard home sewing machine using a walking foot
- How to attach the quilt binding by machine, to finish the edges of your quilt
In class, you will start and finish a 36" square quilt with two different fabrics on the front and back. The finished project makes an ideal baby quilt, lap quilt, or wall hanging. You'll also leave with the know-how to tackle more quilting projects on your own!
Note: This class does not cover patchwork quilting. We will be working with solid pieces of fabric, not pieced patchwork. If you'd like to learn to sew patchwork, check out our Quilt Block of the Month series!
SKILL REQUIREMENTS: This is an easy/intermediate class -- you do not need advanced sewing skills, but you must have basic machine sewing knowledge. Our Sewing 101 or equivalent is a prerequisite to this class. Unfortunately, we cannot accept students for this class who have never sewn on a machine.
