Introduction to Walking Foot Quilting

Come explore walking foot quilting with Emile! Students in this class will get a taste of straight line quilting with a walking foot or Integrated Dual Feed. They will complete mini quilting samples in easy-to-accomplish popular designs that work with a variety of traditional pieced quilt designs and begin an 18x18 cushion cover in their choice of quilted designs. Emile will cover how to prep the fabric and sandwich a quilt specifically for domestic machine quilting and reveal all the tips and tricks they use for walking foot quilting on larger projects. Experience level: intermediate/advanced sewists welcome, bring your own machine and compatible walking foot. Don't have a walking foot yet? Email and we will find you a classroom machine that does!

Skill Level: Intermediate
Skill Details: Students should have a thorough familiarity with their machines and how to use a variety of threads. No prior knowledge of quilting required as the techniques taught in class will work for quilters and garment makers alike.
Materials Included: Fabric, batting, and thread to complete simple stitch samples
Requirements: Students are strongly encouraged to bring their own machines and walking feet to ensure that the skills learned in class translate to their practice at home. A limited number of Berninas/bernettes will be available by request in advance.
Instructor: Emile
Instructor Bio: Emile is a fearless seamstress and Bernina-certified technician who will try anything once. They have been sewing in one way or another since they were 6 and returned to sewing for stress relief during the pandemic. Quilting and embroidery has continued to be their creative refuge though they've rapidly expanded into all kinds of sewing from hand-sewing to industrial work and everything in-between.
