Join Deb Ewing for the informative introduction to Ruler Work with your domestic machine. She will cover the topics below and more: Setting up your machine for Ruler Foot Quilting Why, when, and how to adjust the Ruler Foot Discussing the differences between various Rulers and Templates and their uses Using the Speed Control and foot pedal to "regulate" your speed for more even stitches How to sit and hold the fabric and ruler at the same time as you quilt Practicing stitching straight lines and curves with the Arc Ruler This is the foundation class for all other Rulerwork classes.

Cost: $ 25.00
Motifs are made with ruler work templates - usually templates that have a pin hole in them allowing you to work (kind of like a spirograph) a 360 degree area. Many quilters like to use motifs in the blank (background) squares of a quilt (think Irish chain - which alternates a nine-patch and a blank square throughout the quilt).

Cost: $ 25.00
Are you a beginner quilter looking to learn the basics of how to use your quilting feet? Join Debra Ewing as she guides you through the in and outs of using the most common quilting feet, including the 1/4, stitch-in-the-ditch, free motion, walking, and ruler feet. With Debra's expert instruction, you'll gain the knowledge and confidence to take your quilting to the next level.

Would you like to be able to quilt an entire quilt on your domestic machine with a basic meander pattern? The Winding Ways template used with a ruler foot makes this so do-able and looks so beautiful when it is completed! And it's fast once you learn how to use it! We'll go over how to use the template, including ways to offset the template so the quilted pattern looks more organic than "canned" - AND what to do when you have more template than fabric at the end of a row. You're going to LOVE working with this template and what you can do with it! Prerequisites: Basic Ruler Work class
