In this first class, Cathy will show you what accessories will help you glide your quilt through your machine more smoothly, what types of thread, fabrics, and batting you will need as you are getting started. She also goes through the basics of setting up your machine for free motion including dropping the feed dogs, changing to the correct presser foot, and selecting the correct stitch and needle position.
