Machine Binding

Binding is an essential part of the quilting process, one which many people learn to love. In this class you will learn how to cut straight of the grain binding, sew binding strips together, and apply the binding onto your project. We will finish with machine binding, no hand sewing for this session; if you would like to learn how to hand bind, you'll need to take "Hand Binding" taught by Sue.

You will need the following for class:

Sewing machine


Project you want to bind (preferably crib quilt or smaller so you can complete all of the steps and no curved edges)

Enough fabric for your binding—ask our staff to help you with that or measure all four sides of your quilt, add that measurement together. Then divide that number by 42” (the width of usable fabric) this will give you the number of cuts you need. Then multiply the number of usable cuts by 2.5” to determine how much fabric (in inches) you need.

Rotary Cutter

Ruler (recommend at least 2.5” wide)

Cutting mat

Class Policies:

If your class starts at the same time that we open, we will let you into the shop ten minutes before class time.

In consideration of other students and employees with allergies, please limit your use of scented personal products when attending one of our classes.

If your class calls for a book or pattern, each student needs their own copy of that book or pattern. Under federal copyright law, books and patterns may not be shared.

If your class requires a sewing machine, please be sure that you are familiar with its operation, it is in good working order, has been serviced recently, and bring your manual along to class just in case!

We do not allow children under the age of 18 in our classes without the consent of the teacher and the shop owner. 

Only the person who is enrolled and paid for the class may be in the classroom during class time. Out of consideration for the teacher and the other students, please do not bring children, guests, or friends to class with you.
