10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, February 16
Get a continuous quilt binding crash course where we’ll cover joining your binding strips on 45-degree angle, prepping the strips to be sewn to your quilt top, using a walking foot to evenly feet all the layers through your sewing machine, sewing mitered corners, joining your ends in continuous binding, trimming your batting even with the quilt top and stitching your binding down to the back using a whip stitch that is practically invisible.
When you are done, you will have fabulous looking binding, square corners and it will be impossible to tell where you started or stopped your binding.
