Dates: Tuesday, June 6th: 1 - 4
Instructor: Linda Halpin
Whether you have quilted before or not, this class is for you. Begin as if you are new to hand quilting, and explore the world of poke-pull (or stab stitch) quilting. Executed differently from the running stitch, poke-pull quilting is easier to do and allows you to make quilting stitches that are straight and even, and look the same on the front of the quilt as they do on the back. No more calluses, no sore fingers, and no need for a thimble, poke-pull quilting is especially good for those with arthritis, carpal tunnel, or limited flexibility due to mastectomies. You will also learn template making and transference of design.
