You've been doing free-motion quilting, but you're curious about the new FMQ rulers you've been seeing. You're not quite sure how to get started. No worries! Joan and Cynthia have teamed up to help you. You must already know how to do free-motion quilting to take this class. Price: $28 Supplies: You can buy the Slim and Archie rulers at the store, and you'll need to get those plus the foot for your particular machine ahead of time. You can get the more generic Westalee ruler foot, or you can check with your dealer to get a specific FMQ ruler foot. (The Bernina foot is a 72 foot.) Be sure you've ordered a foot and the rulers by the end of March so that you have them in time for the class. Machingers gloves are required. A slip-slide for the bed of your machine is optional but highly recommended. You need a wash-out blue pen. Bring about 5 quilt sandwiches with contrasting, good-quality thread in several colors or weights. (Sometimes it helps to put one brand in the bobbin and another in the top.) Fresh needles.
