Sew Precise Sew Fast Machine Binding  - SOLD OUT

Thurs. May 7, 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM | 232-T | $55.00 

Level: Beginning, Hands-On | Category: Binding

If you machine quilt why not machine bind? After years of searching, Suzanne developed a technique to create a tight 1/4" binding by machine. Stitching is invisible (ditch-stitched) on the quilt front and perfectly top-stitched on the back. Discover this amazing technique to finish your quilts quickly and easily. Learn to create perfectly mitered corners and an easy lump less finish. Bind a practice quilt in class.

Kit includes: Instruction booklet, water-soluble thread and cotton yarn.

Student supply list: A small square or rectangular quilt to bind, at least 15” wide/tall. Use pre-quilted fabric, or create a small quilt by practicing your quilting skills on scrap fabric. Two layers of fabric with batting and a little quilting will work (this is practice)! Strips of binding fabric 2 1/8” wide. Do not join strips together. To find # of strips to cut, multiply 2 x (length + width of quilt). Add 24”. Divide by 40” and round up to a whole number. Cut this # of strips. Basic sewing supplies (scissors to cut threads, seam ripper, bobbins, etc.). Small rotary ruler, Pins (fine-shaft suggested) and one hand-sewing needle. Fabric marker, Thread to match your binding fabric.
