My first long arm quilting class! Boersma's brought in Jamie Wallen to teach long-arm quilters how to use his rulers and designs. I was thrilled to head over to McMinnville for a few days of classes and camping in our trailer in the middle of wine country.
I was afraid that the class would all be geared toward people with the stand up frame, and since I have the sit down version, the techniques are somewhat different. But I was pleased with the instructions. And I scored some rulers! Oh yes, lots of them.
Thanks to one of my quilting friends, who lent me her rulers, I had an idea of what I wanted before I took the classes. Jamie has developed quite an array of rulers both for quilting (1/4" thick) and for designing. His company is called Quilter's Apothecary and you can order any time from him on line. He has a lot of other cool gadgets too. If you get a chance to take a class from him, do it! He's wonderful.
Here's what I bought: bobbin case dewarper, circles and ovals starter set, straight and curved starter set, one longer ditch ruler, can of tacky spray. That should do it for now!
I also found some material in the quilt store that I couldn't pass with the class discount.
Wow! It looks like you are totally stocked for all sorts of ruler work designs! I'm glad you had such a great experience!ReplyDelete
