Learn to Attach Perfect Bindings


Teacher Viv Smith

Cost: $20 & all inclusive kit $15

If you wish to learn how to bind your quilts, table runners or oven pads with perfect bindings, this is the class for you.

This is a hands on workshop, with all sandwiches, binding fabrics and written instructions provided to maximize your learning time.

1)     Learn to start, attach and finish perfectly, a double fold French mitered binding to a quilt sandwich.  We not only apply it to 90° corners, but other angles as well.

2)      Learn to attach different binding widths from 2 ¼” to 6” wide.

3)      Learn to finish your binding with both the hand stitching technique and the quicker machine walking foot technique.

4)     Learn how to add a narrow phalange to the edge of a quilt, before binding, to add some sparkle.


Supply list:      Sewing machine with additional walking foot. (Unless you are booking a DFW machine.)      Bring a few basic colored machine spools of threads.      Hand sewing machine needle, pins and scissors.

If you wish to use a store machine rather than bringing your own, please let us know when you register for the class.
