Creative Walking Foot Workshop • May 2nd – 5th, 2019 • $925.00
Join Jacquie Gering in Kansas City for a weekend of walking foot quilting. Participants will learn techniques, practice their skills and fill their quilting design toolbox. Jacquie will begin by reviewing the basics and establishing a firm foundation for expanding and growing participants’ skills with the walking foot.
With Jacquie’s guidance, participants will apply that knowledge to learn and practice walking foot-friendly designs from simple to complex. Jacquie will support participants as they use that knowledge to create their own unique designs. She will also teach strategies for managing large quilts and marking and quilting intricate designs.
Together, Jacquie and the group will explore how to analyze quilts to create quilting designs that will support and enhance the piecing. Participants will leave with a toolbox filled with creative quilting options and the knowledge, skills and confidence to create their own quilts.
Day 1 – Thursday, May 2
The weekend begins with a bus trip to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Here you will meet Jacquie Gering for an evening of inspiration to kick off your weekend of creativity.
