Workshop: Walking Foot Wonders
Length: 6 hours
Level: All
Description:
Are you tired of stitching in the ditch? Learn to utilize the power of your walking foot to
stitch “near” the ditch instead! It’s much faster and easier, yielding results that are very
forgiving and more fun to stitch! We’ll explore a wide range of designs like wavy lines and
grids, and interesting geometric spirals. Students will learn how to incorporate decorative
machine stitches to create interesting machine quilted textures. We’ll also discuss how
walking foot motifs can be quilted as an allover design, or applied to different areas of a quilt
for a custom look. After taking this class, students will be empowered to embrace the beauty
of imperfection as they learn to quilt their own quilts!
Note: please be sure you know how to use your sewing machine and switch out your feet.
Unfortunately, we won’t have time in class to trouble shoot your machine.
