WALK 2.0 Workshop with Jacquie Gering
June 25th – 28th, 2020 • $965.00
Ready to take your walking foot quilting skills to the next level? Join Jacquie Gering June 25 – 28, 2020 for a weekend focused on walking foot quilting. Jacquie will teach designs from her new book, WALK 2.0, applying the walking foot basics of following a marked line, echoing, gentle marked and unmarked curves, and point-to-point lines and curves to execute intricate and intensive designs.
Participants will have two and a half days of instruction to learn new designs and practice their skills as well as learn marking and quilt manipulation strategies. Jacquie will also teach a Quilt-As-You-Go method to help tackle those large quilts more easily on your home sewing machine. Participants will delve into the “quilt as desired” dilemma by working together to apply design principles and create quilting plans for their own quilt tops.
In addition to the skills you will hone and the quilting designs you will add to your quilting toolbox, the weekend will be filled with fun, camaraderie and extra events to round out the weekend.
This class is for intermediate and advanced walking foot quilters. If you have taken Jacquie’s Creative Quilting with the Walking Foot, you are ready for this challenge. If you are a beginning walking foot quilter, please feel free to contact Jacquie to discuss your readiness for this class.
