Christa Watson Event

Workshop:  Modern Machine Quilting
Description:  Take your quilts to the next level by adding depth and dimension to your designs.  The secret is learning to let go of perfection by creating asymmetrical textures that require little to no marking of the quilt.  Unleash the potential of your domestic machine by utilizing both free-motion quilting and walking foot (or dual feed) techniques.  Practice on pre-basted fabric and batting samples, or use up leftover quilt blocks.

Included with class fee:
Thursday night lecture, August 5, 6-7:30 pm
Friday, August 6, 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
99 Machine Quilting Designs book by Christa Watson
12 practice sandwiches

Supply List:
Extra bobbins, thread snips
Washable marking pen and straight edge, or painters tape to use as a guide
New machine needle:  I recommend size 80/12 sharp or topstitch
Sketchbook and pen or pencil for note taking and design sketching
Sewing machine in good working order with owner's manual and all attachments
   It should have zig-zag capabilities and at least a couple of decorative stitches
   Make sure the zig-zag stitch plate is attached.  This is the regular one that comes with the machine and has a wider hole
   Don't forget to bring the entire base of your machine.  In other words, don't leave the free arm exposed so you have enough work area
   Open toe walking foot (or Bernina dual feed)  to fit your machine - arrive early with it already attached
   Free motion foot to fit your machine - please make sure it fits before class - I prefer the Bernina open toe 24 or the BSR

Requirements: Quilt sandwiches, thread, and book included in the price. Bring your own machine and whatever sewing supplies you want.
Includes lunch & Thur Evening lecture
