Hand quilting is hand quilting, including the current ?big stitch? style. One hundred years ago these stitches would have insured your position as a permanent needle threader, now it is considered a design element. Stitching with bigger stitches and thicker thread is a wonderful alternative and/or in combination with machine quilting. Studies have proven that repetitive movements like hand stitching can also reduce your stress level. Come spend a few hours learning this technique and add it to your tool kit. Besides learning and practicing the basic rocking motion for hand quilting, we will discuss threads, needles, hoops, pinning, basting, marking techniques, thimbles and more. I will share my tips, advice and show you my process with lots of opportunity for you to explore what supplies and techniques work for you.
