For the class you will need:

  • A sewing machine in good working order
  • Either the ability to drop the feed dogs on your machine or a cover to cover them up.
  • Neutral thread (it’s a good idea to have a few bobbins wound in advance)
  • Quilting needle 90/14 for your machine
  • Scissors, seam ripper
  • free motion quilting foot 
  • clear plastic ruler
  • Blue washout marker or similar erasable marker
  • 3 quilt sandwiches approx. 24” square from muslin or 100% cotton solid or tone on tone fabric ***pattered fabric is not suitable for this as it makes it difficult to evaluate your stitches.  To make a quilt sandwich, cut 24" squares of your top fabric, backing and batting and baste them together prior to class.

  • Nice to have for all sessions:

  • Quilting gloves
  • Extension Table for your machine

 Due to allergies please refrain from wearing perfume on the class day.
