Gina Perkes will be here in July of 2017, and we are excited to learn her machine quilting techniques. After you have joined us for her lecture during our normal July General Meeting, we hope you will be able to attend these classes. (Prior registration required.)
Not So Basic Machine Quilting
(Friday July 21, 2017)
Ready to take your free motion quilting to the next level? You will learn many new designs in this class and easy ways to quilt them including:
- sashing designs,
- and fillers.
Discover how to select stitching paths which will reduce or eliminate backtracking altogether. Gina will help you to identify your own unique style and build upon it. She will also discuss how to change the look and style of a quilting design by varying added details. This class is filled with techniques, tips, creativity, & inspiration!
Ruler Work I
(Saturday July 22, 2017)
Quilting rulers are amazing tools! Gina will show you how to use them to create incredible free motion designs. You will discover how to hold them for better control and accuracy, how to use the registration marks on the rulers for angles and built up designs, and which foot to use. Read as much as possible you can here. You will leave class with excellent technique and a new
supply of quilting designs: both curvy and geometric.
These workshops are hands on and are taught for domestic sewing machines. The cost for the classes is $60/class for members. (Please contact Lynne Saul if you are not a member.) You can sign up for these classes either immediately before the General Meeting, or at the break. If you can’t make the meeting, please send a check made out to SRVQG and the name of the class(es) you are signing up for, to Lynne. You can find her address in the February Newsletter.
