Description of classes for Dec 2019 Open House:
Basics of ruler work, Introduction
Cost – $65
Have you tried using rulers on your Longarm? Dee will show you the basics of how to use rulers while you make straight lines, SID (stitch in the ditch) and discuss patterns that enhance your pieced top design. Topics about other design elements including thread and motif will also be discussed and you will have time to practice these on a longarm.
Beyond the basics, Ruler work and Free-motion fill
Cost – $65
Quilting is more than just putting thread through all layers of a quilt. The quilt motif is a design element along with the thread and both need to coordinate to make your piece a beauty. Let’s go beyond just SID (stitch in the ditch) and beyond using just a straight ruler and practice a few more designs. We may even try some feathers! We will add a couple of different rulers to show how they can spice up your quilting.

Meet the Teacher
Betty Sherman started quilting in 2012. She started out by signing up for a quilt class at a local quilt shop. The first quilt was a (quilt as you go) quilt. “my Aunt was turning 80 years old and I wanted to make her something special. After her first quilt she wanted to make her granddaughter a picture quilt. After she finished making the quilt she realized that she had to quilt it. She started quilting it on a domestic machine and then decided to get a longarm quilting machine. After getting her first longarm she realized that she was hooked. She mostly taught herself and attended several classes and watch many you tube videos on how to use the longarm. She then upgraded to a newer machine, a Nolting N V, with the QuiltMagine computer system, which she currently uses today. She has taught free motion quilting and Template/Rulers at several quilt area shops. We are excited to have her teaching at Memory Lane!
