Machine Binding 101

One of the goals of the guild is to incorporate more classes, retreats, sew days, and general fun having into our schedule.  We've had a lot of "business" to attend to with establishing our guild in a more official capacity than it previously was, and I feel like we're finally getting a foot hold.

So, on Sunday, Mauri, at Oklahoma Quiltworks, held a special Machine Binding class just for Guild Members.

We had a good turnout and it is certainly a skill that will take a good bit of practice.  Mauri had great tips on how to get a nice even binding on each side of the quilt, how to set your needle, how to handle corners, and some of our members even learned some binding basics.  She really ran the gamut with us and we had a wonderful time!

If you're in the OKC area I highly recommend checking out the schedule to see when you can take Mauri's class.  She's a great teacher and has a fabulous dry sense of humor!!!  :)

Tomorrow we have a Meeting and Sew Day from 10-4 at St. Mary's Episcopal Church.  We'd love to see you there!!!  (Especially if you bring a snack to share.  ;) )
