FREE-MOTION QUILTING
ON THE BABY LOCK TIARA

Instructor: Linda Hall
Time: 9:30am to 4:30pm
Fee: $50 (kit included)
With Baby Lock Grip and Template Quilting System The Creative Motion Quilting Design System was created by a quilter for quilters to make Free Motion Quilting faster and easier for the Beginner yet versatile enough for the more advanced stitcher.

The system includes: Tru-Grip – with an offset holder for the Baby Lock Tru- Stitch Regulator. Free-Motion Grip – without the offset. Template pattern inserts for Structured Free-Motion Quilting. The main component is the Tru-Grip tool that acts as another set of hands to hold the quilt steady while free-motion quilting. The Tru-Grip also holds the Tru-Stitch Regulator secure so that the quilter can concentrate on his/her designs rather than holding on to the tools. No more racing motor or jerking speed, no more split second delay in movement and the machine's response, no more difficulty in controlling the machine or the stitch patterns, no matter how complex. Creative focus and flow is undisturbed without distraction when using it.
