Westalee Rulers can help transform your free-motion quilting by enabling you to undertake creative free-motion quilting in a controlled way on your domestic sewing machine. Using the rulers will help you to stitch a large range of beautiful patterns and designs usually reserved for Longarm machines.
2 Day Sampler Set Course - 10am - 4pm
A step on from the beginners 1 day workshop, this Sampler Set course is designed to help you get the most from the Westalee Sampler Set (6 rulers). Each day we will explore three of the rulers in your Sampler Set plus the Starter ruler. You will be guided through a series of exercises and patterns, learn about marking out for accuracy and repetition and how to best manage a quilt on a domestic sewing machine.
With hands-on guidance and encouragement your confidence and knowledge will grow quickly, enabling you to explore and stitch out your our own designs in no time.
This course is designed to give you practical guidance and improved stitch technique rather than completing a finished item.
This course is NOT suitable for absolute beginners of Westalee Ruler work. I will not be covering basic machine set up. You should be comfortable fitting the Ruler Foot to your machine and able to stitch a basic straight line and curve as a minimum requirement.
To attend this class you will need the appropriate Westalee Ruler Foot, 12” Arc Ruler and Spacing Gauge plus an extension table for your machine.
If you have a 0.5 inch round sewing machine manufacturers ruler foot, you will need the Westalee 12” Arc Ruler and Spacing Gauge.
Westalee Ruler Feet and Rulers can be purchased from the Cotton Patch (www.cottonpatch.co.uk), where you will find a very useful ebook to help you to work out which is the correct version for your machine. Any query regarding the type of foot needed please contact Jayne on 0121 702 2840 or at email@example.com and she will be happy to help.
Once booked on a workshop Angela will offer you a discount code entitling you to 10% off Westalee products online at www.cottonpatch.co.uk
Cotton Patch also supply a range of Sew Steady extension tables for most makes and models of machines. These are made to order and imported from the USA and so can take up to 10 to 12 weeks to be delivered. Please bear this in mind if you need to order a table prior to attending a workshop.
