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.

Who all would be bringing their own sewing machine? There are machines at the space, just want to figure out how many on hand total if anyone brings their own
