November 7, 2019 –  6:39 pm “Show us the Back!” with Jane Adolf

This is a demo/lecture class. No need to bring sewing machine or supplies. Join us for a look at the back of the quilt. Be your long-armer’s favorite customer by providing a quilt back that will be easy to load and stitch to your quilt top. Through a mini trunk show and slide presentation, Jane will discuss fabric size and pattern, thread choice, and provide some technical tips on piecing the backing when you don’t have one piece large enough. We’ll get into the fun stuff when we discuss piecing options, design choices, and ways to make the back of the quilt almost as wonderful as the front. Feel free to bring one of your quilts with your favorite backing to share with the group.

November 21, 2019 –  10 am – 2 pm Clothesline Bowls, Terry Catron

• Sewing machine with zigzag capability. This project generates lots of lint so, make sure your machine is cleaned and oiled before beginning and throughout the project. You will be sewing through fabric-wrapped clothesline so a machine capable of sewing through thick seams without complaint is needed.

• Paper glue stick or Aleene’s Tacky Glue

• Fabric: Approximately ½ yd. of cotton fabric, cut into between ¾” and 1” strips, width of fabric. You may use fat quarters, but it becomes tedious to use anything less than 18” in width.

• Thread: This project uses a lot of thread so bring extra. If making a scrappy project, this is a good way to use leftover threads and bobbins. It’s a good idea to prewind a couple bobbins, as well.

• Sewing machine needles: I normally use a size 70/10 or 80/12 needle universal needle. Others have required a 90/14 universal, denim or microtext needle or 75/11, 90/14 quilting needle. You may want to bring a couple needles, as you will be sewing through cloth-covered rope and there is a chance of bending or breaking a needle, although this has been a rare occurrence in my experience. Your choice of needle will depend upon your machine and what it likes when stitching this project, so bring a variety of needle sizes.
