Supply List for Beginning Machine Quilting Workshop


This workshop will be taught by Cindy Lammon on May 14th from 10am-3pm.  This workshop will open to all members and there is no need to preregister.  (Lunch options will come in a separate email)


o Sewing Machine and manual (You must know how to thread your machine, sew a straight stitch and drop the feed dogs. Check if your machine has a needle down option. If your machine has a knee lifter and/or a surround for a larger surface – bring them)

o Walking Foot for your machine

o Machine Quilting or Darning Foot for your machine

o New “Quilting” or “Microtex Sharp” machine needles size 80

o Thread in colors to match your fabrics with filled bobbins

o Masking Tape

o Quilter’s safety pins size 1 or 2

o Fingertip Moistener or “Sortkwik” (available at office supply store) and/or quilting gloves

o Marking pen - washout or disappearing marker recommended

o 12” ruler for drawing

o Practice fabric:

  • 1 square of light, not “busy” fabric 18” x 18” 
  • 2 squares of light fabric 20” x 20” 
  • 2 squares of cotton or cotton blend batting 20” x 20” 
  • 1 Four Patch made from 4 squares of light, not “busy” fabric cut 9 1/2” x 9 1/2” each, sewn together, with seams pressed to one side 

Additional Info:

o A Walking Foot provides “feed” for the top layer of your quilt and is used for straight-line quilting. (Practice can be done without it)

o A Quilting Foot/Darning Foot is used for free-motion quilting where you will drop the feed dogs. o For those comfortable with free motion quilting, you can use the class to practice some new-to-you designs. (I’ll bring ideas!)

o Optional - instead of the 18” sample square, you can bring a small charity quilt to practice on. o
