She will also share her tips on getting perfect tension with every type of thread, on every machine brand, using the right size of needle for the thread and fabric you are working with, and on using three degrees of tension to achieve the perfect look for every quilt. Learn how to make your borders look like they were quilted with no stops and starts without ever turning your quilt, plus so much more. Join in the fun and learn tips and tricks that are sure to have you smiling and saying, “no problem, I can quilt that out!”
