Interest Check: Sewing Machine Training/Workshop in June


#21

On a more serious note - my wife likes the block type designs.
She uses a green cutting board and rotary cutter with various quilting rulers to make the pieces.
To make life easier she uses a 1/4" quilting foot on her sewing machine when making the blocks - so if you wanted to have blocks 4"x4" you would cut them 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"

The actual “quilting” part is when you have the 3 layers and you are sewing them together - for larger quilts she sends them out, but for smaller quilts she puts a different foot in the machine and free forms.

I’ll see if she wants to do a demo on it one night at VHS

Looks like 1pm Sunday June 10 is the best. Also looks like making an apron is best for a teaching how to. Ok next thing is I did make a post about sewing supplies in the hackspace, in order to go forward we need these supplies.
