No matter what sewing machine you own this is a class for Quilters that are ready to finish their quilts with free motion ruler work! Become a rulerwork pro! Using the Westalee Designs Rulerwork system, you will learn to create stunning patterns and motifs in your free motion projects. For a class preview or more info contact us or come to the FREE demo on June 11th in Loveland! This is a beginning level free motion quilting class to introduce Westalee’s ruler foot and templates. The class is hands-on, so you’ll have a chance to use your new templates and practice some really fun techniques. Be sure to bring all your questions, too! BASIC SKILLS NEEDED FOR THIS CLASS  Be familiar with your sewing machine.  Know how to wind and change a bobbin.  Know how to thread your machine and install your bobbin.  Know how to drop your feed dogs.  Know how to adjust your machine’s tension for free motion. Very important.  You will enjoy this class most if you’ve had some free motion experience, but we’ll be touching on the basics during class. GET AN ADDITIONAL 10% OFF SUPPLIES WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR THIS CLASS. FABRICS AND BATTING  Fabric: 1 yard of a solid color cotton fabric suitable for quilting.  Batting: Suggest using bamboo, cotton, or 80/20 poly-cotton batting. Fluffy polyester batting seems to be harder to work with when you’re learning. FABRIC PREPARATION BEFORE CLASS  Leave the fabric folded as is comes off the bolt. One side will be the front and one side will be the back.  You’ll have a piece to practice on that is about 36” long by about 20” wide.  Layer top, batting and backing.  Secure layers using your favorite method (but not safety pins).  Recommend fusible batting, basting spray or hand basting to secure layers. Safety pins are very difficult when using templates. GET AN ADDITIONAL 10% OFF SUPPLIES WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR THIS CLASS. GENERAL SUPPLIES:  Sewing machine and accessories; your sewing machine manual; a sewing machine extension table to support rulers. o NOTE: your machine must be in good working order – we’re not able to make repairs during classes.  Please put a new needle in your machine before class. Suggest a 90/14 tapestry needle or a 90/14 quilting needle or a 90/14 sharp needle. Bring extra needles with you.  Thread for quilting. Please wind a bobbin with your chosen thread before class. Good quality, 40 or 50 weight thread, either cotton or polyester will give good results. Suggest using a color lighter or darker than your fabric so you are able to easily see your work.  Quilting gloves.  Forceps or long tweezers for pulling bobbin thread to the top of your piece.  Marking pen or pencil for marking your practice piece. Please test this beforehand to make sure you can see it on your fabric and that it can be removed from your chosen fabric easily.  Small scissors.
