This is a 3-day fun retreat and one you don't want to miss. You'll learn all aspects of serging from threading, seaming, incorporating decorative stitches, and how to use your accessory feet. If you own the Ovation or Triumph, you are welcome to bring your own machine. Please also bring your foot kit (if you have one) and all other accessories that came with your machine. There is also an Advanced Session that will be held on August 8, 9, 10 in Longmont. You must complete the Beginner Session in order to take the Advanced. The event will be held at Maggie's Sewing & Vacuum, 1737 So. College Ave, Fort Collins. A $100 deposit will be required upon registration to hold your seat.
Have you been struggling to close your (or your teen's) t-shirt drawer as your collection of well-loved T's increases over the years? It's not easy to get rid of them -- they are the equivalent of a textile scrapbook. They evoke memories of vacations, events, concerts, teams, movies and much more.
This is a class designed to familiarize students with the basics of free-motion quilting. In this class you will learn nine filler designs, four ruler techniques, six border and sashing ideas, basics and variations of free-motion feathers. Once you learn these basic shapes and techniques, you will be able to build from there to more complicated designs. Additionally, Darcy will give you ideas and tips to help you become a better longarm quilter. Lecture/demo and practice. Use Maggie's machines during this class to perfect your techniques!
