Learn basic hand and machine sewing skills and the nuts and bolts technical stuff of assembling your quilt top, tying your comforter and other hand finishing techniques.
Please note, I do not teach machine quilting or hand quilting involving stitching through many layers of fabric and padding.
I can recommend teachers who are better at color work and design.
Please see the Overview below for general information.
I have been sewing since I was twelve and have been quilting for twelve years. I enjoy designing and working on quilt tops. I work from patterns sometimes but I really love to make quilts based on pictures and drawings.
Simple patterns, applique or creating your own pattern. I can help you with different techniques. Even if you only want a couple lessons.
i focus on machine quilting. i will do just about anything to avoid hand sewing, but i do know several stitches and when to use them.
I understand patterns, how to change them, when not to change them, and how to make something easier!
Together, we can start at the beginning (how to use a sewing machine, what materials you need, etc) and work up to something amazing (queen sized bed cover perhaps!)
Personally, I am notorious for making my own projects more complicated than necessary but that's because i find a pattern I like and choose to alter it to my own specifications.
I've been teaching quilting now for 15 years. When I first was taught many years ago I took off and can teach anyone the basics of hand quilting as well as using a sewing machine. You will learn how to do basic quilting patterns, how many stitches to an inch, how color fabric works together and we will do a lap quilt using 4 different squares. I will also teach you hand made binding. I supply needles, quilting thread, and basic fabric to practice. I use all quilting books for studying and showing basics to students. Welcome all ages!
