Margaret will be leading this hands-on ruler work class based on the Sew Steady Ruler Work 101 series where you will learn ruler techniques for quilt-as-you go and assemble a sampler quilt. It will be a 4-week course, meeting once each week. This class requires several items that may need to be ordered specific to your sewing machine that may need to be special ordered. Therefore, it is important to register early plan ahead. As always, a 10% discount is offered for fabric and batting purchased for the class.
Sewing Machine, Ruler Foot for your machine, Sew Steady Rulers (Class Ruler Kit), a quilting extension table (like Sew Steady), quilting gloves, fabric & batting for quilt. Pre-registration and payment is required.
In addition to the materials for your quilt, you should bring a 10x10 practice square to each class (two squares of fabric with a square of batting between).
Margaret started sewing as a pre-teen, making many of her own clothes as many of us used to. When she had extra money, she would go to the fabric store, pick out a pattern, and buy fabric. In addition to making clothing, she made lots of various craft projects as well as square-dance clothes for her parents. Her sewing slowed down after she got married and had kids, but as she got to the point of thinking about retirement, she re-started her hobby. What better hobby than something she had enjoyed most of her life!!! So, she talked an adult education teacher into offering a beginner quilting class. That's all it took to start a love of quilting. Eventually, she moved on to taking classes at a local quilt shop and expanded her knowledge and skills. When she started at Stitcher's Quest, she was thrilled to be working in a quilt shop and has been amazed at how much more there was to learn. She continued to learn daily from doing projects, from co-workers, and from customers! She loves new projects, new techniques, new challenges, and especially loves seeing new quilters learning and loving what they are doing!!!
