Please join us
Saturday, Mar. 29th
for a fun-filled day dedicated quilting and our first ever
Quilting Trunk Show
The LINDEN TREE is hosting a Trunk Show and presentation by professional long-arm quilter, Lois Koester. Lois spent many years as a professional long-arm quilter at Faye's Quilt Shop in Mayville, North Dakota. After stitching her magic on hundreds of quilts, Lois has moved back to Minnesota to be close to family. North Dakota's loss is our gain, as Lois is willing to share her expertise with you at the LINDEN TREE!
Long~Arm Quilting Trunk Show
Saturday, March 29th, 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm
Reservations recommended for the Trunk Show
For those of you who have never attended a Trunk Show, we offer this explanation. A Quilt Trunk Show is a traveling display of quilts sewn by one or more quilters. Usually included with the show is a discussion of some quilting techniques. Our show will include a discussion of the different battings available for your quilt, how to prepare a quilt for a long arm quilter, and what NOT do to your quilt top before taking it to the quilter. Lois will display samples of various designs which are commonly used in quilting. There will be a question-and-answer time after the Trunk Show. You may bring quilt tops if you wish to discuss details with Lois and, if time permits, she will help you.
Walking Foot Quilting Demo
March 29th, 10:30 am to 11:30 am
In addition to the Trunk Show with Lois, the Linden Tree will also host two free demonstrations of domestic (home) machine quilting. From 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. our quilting teacher, Nancy Drew, will demonstrate machine quilting using a walking foot. A walking foot allows you to quilt using straight and slightly curvy lines.
Free Motion Foot Quilting Demo
March 29th, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Nancy will demonstrate machine quilting using a free motion foot from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. A free motion foot allows you to quilt intricate designs such as flowers, leaves, stars, hearts. Even script writing is possible with a free motion foot.
We hope to see you Saturday!
