Are you ready to learn how to use rulers on your home machine? This class will teach you tips and tricks for getting your machine ready for free motion quilting. We will cover thread choice, batting, setting tension and the basics of free motion quilting with a straight edge ruler. Samples will be shown using a variety of different rulers, but the main focus will be using the Handi Quilter Versa Tool. If there’s interest, future classes will be scheduled. The original classes were a series of 6 classes covering 6 different rulers.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before class to set up your machine.
