Free-Motion Machine Quilting – taster session (16/5/20)

May 16 @ 10:30 am - 1:15 pm


Join us for a fascinating morning class on the technique of free-motion quilting using the shop machines. Learn free-motion basics, such as: how to set up your machine and yourself; how to prepare fabrics; and which needles and threads to use. You’ll learn useful stitching techniques such as stippling, pebbling and curves. After tuition and practice there is time to make a sampler of the stitches you learn, which you can take home for reference. With tutor Sue Everett.

Dates and times

This class runs on Saturday 16th May 2020 from 10.30am until 1.15pm.

Can’t make this date? We’ll be running another session on Saturday 18th April 2020.

What to bring / what we give you

Fabric and wadding is included in the price of the class. Thread is not, so please bring or buy a selection of bright colours.
