Service Description

Learn to use your embroidery machine to quilt continuously for a well finished look to your quilt. Using a Crib or Lap sized quilt, this method will help you quickly understand how to do any size quilt easily. Join us for this fun and informative class to bring a new level of embroidery to your machine. Cut your backing fabric much larger (8 or 10 inches) on all four sides. The batting needs to be 4 inches larger in all dimensions.
