Quilting Lectures

Techniques for Keeping a Quilt Square Lecture/demo – 1 hour Most quilters stitch with a ¼” seam allowance, but many quilts end up with blocks of varying sizes resulting in a quilt that may not be “square.” This lecture addresses the problems and demonstrates how to overcome these issues so that any quilter can easily achieve success and keep the quilt “square.” No Hand Sewing – Binding Techniques by Machine Lecture/demo – 1 hour Let’s face it. Hand sewing a binding takes time, sometimes a long time. Every quilt doesn’t necessarily need a hand stitched binding. Charity quilts, kid’s quilts, even throws for the sofa can be beautifully bound using the machine binding techniques demonstrated in this lecture. I have even used one of these machine techniques to bind show quilts.

Machine Quilting and Longarm Lectures

Tips for Awesome Machine Quilting Lecture/trunk show – 1 hour Who doesn’t want to have an awesome looking quilt? Yet, sometimes we are a little disappointed in our machine quilting. Regardless of whether it is quilted on a home sewing machine or a longarm, there are basics and principles that apply across the board. From start to finish, learn what can be done to make the machine quilting awesome. Solving Frustrating Longarm Problems Power point lecture/trunk show – 2 hours (3 hours with questions) Excellent lecture to combine with a workshop. We love our longarm, love being able to quilt pantos, custom, or even computer guided, but there are those annoying problems. Tension problems, the quilt ends up with “dog ears,” problems loading and scoops on the side of the backing, what to do with “those” customer quilts, puckers! NEVER, and did I mention tension? Learn how to be proactive in preventing problems and how to solve them when they happen. 20 Tips for Successful Longarm Quilting Plus Lecture/demo – 1 hour (excellent for a quilt show lecture) Regardless of the make or model of longarm, these 20 plus tips go beyond to the heart of the matter. These ti ps will help any longarm quilter solve annoying issues, make better quilting decisions with setup, batting, thread, and more, and become more productive.

Field Trip

Longarm Studio Field Trip Lecture/demo – approximately 1 hour. This can also be adapted for a club presentation. Looking for something to do with your group? Road Trip!! Schedule your group for a field trip to our Delightful Quilting & Sewing studio to learn first-hand how quilts are quilted on a longarm. Find out how to prepare your quilt and backing for longarm quilting, how to choose batting, learn what different quilting techniques are and how they are priced, and even have a chance to test drive a longarm. Extend your road trip by visiting quilt shops along the way. Two are within 10 miles of our studio.

What issues do you see with this quilt? I refer to this customer “opportunity” quilt in several of my lectures. Learn how I solved

the many problems presented in this quilt. No, it wasn’t perfect, it couldn’t be, but it was acceptable.
