Jackie Brown Machine Quilting Retreat

    This is for domestic sewing machines or Handi-Quilter sit-down unit (and other quilting units like this).  Please let us know when you sign up--what type machine will you bring for retreat?  Have you taken Kindergarten Machine Quilting? If not, that's O.K. Jackie will take you from where you are and get you started.  This class puts some things into practice.  Learn how to choose and mark your fabric.  You will learn the steps in creative machine quillting such as layering the quilt, pinning, and placement as you are stitching.  Jackie is an accomplished quilter with many blue ribbons.  Spend this weekend learning how to use your home sewing machine or Handi-Quilter sit-down unit.  Learn to stabilize, tips on marking, how to make design decision--this is full of all kinds of information. 
     You will use a pre-marked panel to gain experience in many popular custom quilting styles.  Please do not sandwich any of your items together before retreat.  Call or e-mail with questions.  You must be able to drop the feed dogs on your sewing machine for this machine quilting retreat.
