Quilting Masterfully With Your walking Foot



Are you unsure about quilting your lovely pieced project?  Afraid of your free motion foot?  Then perhaps walking foot quilting is for you. Learn the basics of how to use a walking foot including how to set up and mark your quilt to create consistent stitching and quilting patterns. Learn how to use decorative stitches, create radiating designs, and quilt curves.  Finish the class with a demonstration about how to do a quick, easy facing which requires very little measuring and creates an alternative to binding your quilt. Join Robbie Berg on Saturday, June 4th, 10am-4pm for this class.
