Edge to Edge Quilting on your Embroidery Machine (10:15 am to 4:15 pm)

Use your embroidery machine to quilt your own projects.  Finish your quilt quicker and more efficiently while taking advantage of the features of your embroidery machine.

Wanting to do overall quilting on your potholder/placemat/fabric for garment/quilt?  Well, this one-day class is your answer.  In class, you will learn an Easy-Connect quilting technique for edge-to-edge quilting using your embroidery machine.  We will learn and do every step of the Quilting in The Hoop process from making a template, stabilizing the hoop, preparing your quilt for stitching, and finally stitching the design on your quilt (on regular hoops with the DIME magnetic hoop).

Please Note:  I will bring my DIME Magnetic Hoop (Bernina Jumbo Hoop Size) for you to try and will bring several samples of Sarah Vedeler's designs that I quilted with this hoop.  Mary will order for you and she may have one or two available for purchase.  If you want one please call Mary by Tuesday, September 22, 2021.

Book:  Edge-to-Edge Quilting on Your Embroidery Machine by Amelia Scott Designs is required for this class.  If you have an older copy there is a CD in the back with all designs,  The newer versions have a download code for all designs featured in the book (10 designs in 3 sizes)  Download all the files on to a USB stick in the file type appropriate for your machine and hoop size.

Prior Prep Work is required and described below.
