Class will be at Sparks Windy Moon Quilts

Have you feared using your walking foot for straight line quilting? What about reverse walking foot quilting?

This class will start with the basics of the walking foot – what is the walking and how does it work. The only knowledge you need to have is how to attach your walking foot, we’ll do the rest together. Our walking foot takes us out of the ditch and allows us to create designs of our own or from books. The “WALK Master Machine Quilting with Your Walking Foot” by Jacquie Gering will be used in this class. You will learn to combine lines, make curves and do reverse quilting with the walking foot. This is a six part class–building on your knowledge every month. Once you are done you will be challenging yourself to create new designs.
