Arlington Workshop: Cyndi Souder, Machine Quilting Basics

March 12, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm


Cyndi Souder will conduct a two part workshop:

This Foot was Made for Walking
This introductory workshop will show you how you can quilt your own quilts without freemotion quilting. We will leave the feed dogs up and let the sewing machine determine stitch length for us. It’s easy!

In this class, we will cover basic machine quilting in straight lines, quilting parallel lines, stitching in the ditch, quilting with decorative machine stitches, and my favorite “get it done” method using wavy lines and pretty threads. Never again say “I can’t.”

Fearless Free Motion Quilting Basics
This introductory workshop will introduce you to machine quilting without fear or intimidation. We will drop our feed dogs and discover how simple and fun freemotion quilting can be. It’s easy! In this workshop, we will cover basic freemotion filler patterns including meander, loop-de-loop, and vines. We will discuss personal filler patterns and why it’s useful to have a favorite go-to filler pattern in your back pocket. We’ll also discuss threads, needles, tension, and how to match your freemotion quilting designs to your quilt. You will leave class with samples, confidence, and a brain filled with ideas.
