This online Zoom workshop is perfect for new to rulerwork quilting or those who would like to review and expand their skills. The versatile Westalee Sampler Set of rulers is required ( 6-piece Westalee Sampler Set of rulers ) and will allow all students to leave with the confidence and knowledge base to start quilting with many different quilting patterns without the hours of practice! Our workshop will cover basic set-up as needed, trouble-shooting typical problems and learn how to create many design options with your 6-piece Sampler Set. There will be additional designs beyond the Janet Collins Book for returning students, so everyone learns new designs. Also, Adele is happy to arrange a private zoom &/or e-mail to make sure every student is up and running before the workshop time in case you’ll need something additional. The many tips in this class will ensure that you will be quilting like pro’s in no time!
***Additional costs depend on whether you have, or need to purchase, a ruler foot for your machine and/or the set of rulers required for class. (www.adelescott.com )
Adele will help you select the correct foot for your machine and go over any equipment questions you may have. Contact her by email: (firstname.lastname@example.org)
