Advanced Machine Quilting Requirements

➢ Practice quilt sandwich. Ideally calico on one side and plain black on the other. Make it at least 1m square, with a thin wadding in it. Secure the three layers together in your preferred manner. Depending on how fast you work you may want to have a bigger sample.

➢ Threads, a selection of weights, colours and fibers. Try to bring thread that matches your sandwich (front and back) as well as some that contrast.

➢ Sewing machine where the feed dogs can be dropped or covered. This would be a good time to give it a clean and oil, we will be making it work for it’s living in this class. If you have them bring spare bobbins, this might be a good time to use up those with odd bits of thread on.

➢ A free motion foot, this might be a darning foot, big foot, hopping foot or quilting foot.

➢ Marking tools, chalk pencil, washout pen, vanishing pen. Bring what you have especially if you haven’t played with it yet.

➢ Needles for the machine. If you have them bring a range of needles, sizes 60 – 100, jeans, quilting and metallic needles may all be useful when playing with different threads.

➢ Small scissors for trimming threads.

➢ Paper, for taking notes and practicing designs

➢ If you have any quilt tops waiting that you want ideas for, bring them along.

➢ Lunch – and a mug for drinks
