Beginners Machine Quilting Class

Have you always wanted to learn how to machine quilt your own quilts? I can help you get started and also give you the hint to be kind to yourself as you are learning. I am teaching another series of Beginner Machine Quilting classes at a shop in Blackburn, Victoria called Sewn and Quilted.

The class will cover all the basics such as basting, thread, wadding, tension and marking your quilting designs and then we will move onto free motion quilting designs as well as covering how to manage a quilt using a domestic machine.

I will be teaching the class over 3 Wednesday mornings from 10am to 12.30pm. The good thing about spreading the class over three mornings is that you get a break in between because we all know that there is only so much that you can take in at a time and I find that my students are quite exhausted quilting for an entire day.

The dates for the classes are Wednesday 30th October, 6th November and 27th November, 10-12.30pm

The shop is at 92 Whitehorse Road, Blackburn. Victoria and you enter at the rear of the house.
Please ring Carol on 9877 1664 if you are interested in doing the class.

Linda, I just checked my diary and am free on all three of those days! I would love to attend, now that I have a machine that doesn't weigh a ton, and is capable of quilting! What do I need to do to enrol? (yeah I know - go back and read this post again, lol!)

Me again - I've written all the details down and will phone Carol first thing in the morning. Ken just stuck his head around the corner and said "You've been quiet all night" and I told him "I'm going to do a quilting class on three Wednesdays coming up, so don't make any plans that include me!"
