Basic Binding Plus

Basic Binding Plus  with JANET McDONALD

Saturday, March 31  10:30-1:30

$29 plus $7 kit fee

Learn basic binding for straight-edged quilts and one specialty binding. The kit provided includes simple tools and materials to make samples in class to take with you to make binding your next quilts easier and produce more beautiful results. These tips and techniques will be useful whether you machine stitch binding to the front of your quilt and hand sew it to the back or machine stitch both front and back. Janet binds customer quilts at New Pieces and will share things she has learned.

For $5 more bring a quilted but unbound quilt (with material for binding and matching thread, or buy them at New Pieces) and stay as late as 5:45 to bind it with intermittent assistance from Janet.
