Embrace perfectly imperfect quilting! That means little to no marking, and a whole lot of gorgeous texture. Ease into free-motion quilting with asymmetrical textures that are fast and fun to quilt. We’ll explore a wide range of motifs that will look good on any quilt from modern to traditional. Students should be comfortable with a sewing machine, and will practice on their own pre-basted fabric and batting samples.

Bernina Stitchin' Post will equip the classroom with 22 machines for student use. This is a FREE service. Please note on your class registration if you’d like to reserve a Bernina 770 or bring your own machine (see supply list for machine requirements).
