Quilting on Your Domestic Machine
In this basic workshop you will learn surprisingly simple techniques for quilting on your domestic machine. We will talk about stitch in the ditch, meandering, stippling, and other simple designs.
Supplies:
sewing machine 
 extended bar if you have one
machine with ability to lower feed dogs a must
darning foot
straight stitch throat plate if you have one
2 36"squares of muslin or any other light solid quilting fabric
36" square of batting
ruler, pencil
25 safety pins or spray your fabrics and batting together to make a quilt sandwich according to spray can directions. I find this method of spraying to be easier to quilt on than pinning
quilter's gloves, quilting fingers or very snug rubber gloves
basic sewing supplies-----scissors, thread, bobbins, etc., extra sewing machine needles
supplies above can be purchased at Tony's if you don't have them.
Date and time: June 7 2013  1:00-3:30
