|***Jackie Brown Intermediate Machine Quilting||$195.00 3 Session(s)|
|Jackie Brown||Intermediate & Advanced|
Jackie Brown has won many ribbons for her long arm quilting. She has the same talent with domestic machines. Her basic machine quilting retreat has had much success. This retreat is a natural sequel for those individuals that have participated previously. If you are already skilled with domestic machine quilting join this retreat to move on to the next level. The focus of this retreat will be a whole cloth project. You must have enough experience with free motion quilting, to learn this technique. This is very detailed stitching. Jackie has found a way to make your design look like it has movement and dimension with stitches. She will teach new background fills. She will also teach more about everyone's favorite "Feathers". How to enhance them by making them look like they have movement. You will also learn how to use them as a background fill.
This retreat is an overnight stay at our retreat facility which is located behind the quilt store.
This is for domestic sewing machines or Handi-Quilter sit-down unit (and other quilting units like this). Please let us know when you sign up--what type machine will you bring for retreat? You must be able to drop the feed dogs on your sewing machine for this machine quilting retreat.

|Sarah Francis||Adv. Beginner & Intermediate & Advanced|
|Dear Jane is the ULTIMATE Sampler! Join the craze known as Dear Jane...recreate this Civil War era quilt with it's small, interesting blocks and triangles, mainly by machine with applique blocks by hand. This class is taught by technique and you are guaranteed to come away learning a shortcut or two, and/or new techniques. Let Sarah help you with fabric selection. She will take all the "wonder how she made that one" out of it for you. Dear Jane book required. Dear Jane book, DJ Software is optional-but is helpful if you like to paperpiece (BTW-I don't like to paper piece but we do it in class.), Dear Jane rulers--square and triangle, 4" or 6" square with diagonal line for squaring up half square & quarter square triangles (1 prefer Omnigrid), 96 or 96L triangle, Add A Quarater ruler-6" or 12" length (if buying only 1 ruler, buy the 12" for the triangles), Roxanne's Glue Baste It, No Melt Mylar, Freezer paper, Striaght pins-Clover Article No. 2507-Patchwork Pins (Fine) 0.4 mm. (These are what I prefer. They are very fine and don't distort when machine piecing.), scissors for reverse applique (don't buy until I show you, you probably won't find them), starch in container + paintbrush (I use spray starch and then spray into a small bottle with lid), Scotch Removable tape if you will be tracing patterns (it's in a blue box)...if you will be printing instead of tracing you don't need the tape.) All this is in addition to your basic sewing supplies, rotary cutting supplies and sewing machine.|
