BINDINGS – ZOOM WORKSHOP (Part 1 of 2)
October 3 at 9:30 am – 11:30 am
Binding a quilt by sewing machine (2-part virtual class)
We’re running out of time to bind all our quilts by hand! Take this class to perfect your technique to sewing on the binding completely by machine. It’s fast and it’s easy. No special tools or presser feet are required. ZOOM Login information located “Members Only” page.
Part 1 –You’ll learn how to fill your binding completely with the quilt, what width strips you should use, why the seam allowance is so important, how to turn a perfect mitred corner every time, and let’s not forget making that final join so you can’t tell where that last pesky join is.
Part 2 – We’re going to critique the binding from Part 1. There are a few things that can go wrong and if that happened to you, we’re going to look at those issues closely so we can prevent them from occurring in the future. Plus, there’s going to be a trunk show of other very cool things that you can add to your binding, including, piping, the use of decorative stitches, faux flange binding, reversible binding, etc.
