Quilters have been using tools meant for other activities to aid in their work for years. Robbi raids home improvement, office supply and dollar stores for stuff for her studio. She’s been using laser levels and vertical window blinds to square off her quilts. She has a wall of storage drawers in her sewing area. Pipe and chain also helps her dye fabric. She’ll show you why wandering the aisles of the home repair store can lead to better quilting tools and more efficient storage at reasonable prices.

Custom Cuts – the new world of Computerized Cutting. By now most of the quilting world knows about manual die cutters and cutting hundreds of 4½” squares can be done in a snap. Tricky applique shapes can also be mass produced with these wonders. However, if you only need a few units for your project or have an original custom design in mind, the purchase of a die or creation of a custom die will get pricey very fast. But again quilters have commandeered a tool from the scrapbooking world to satisfy the need for precise custom cutting. Once available only for sign making shops the computerized cutter has been retooled for the craft and quilting market. In this class, Candace West will introduce you to the types of computerized cutting machines and software programs that are available. We will discuss the many ways these machines can be used in quilt making. From appliqué, to template making, and embellishment, these machines could be your answer to custom cuts for original quilts that are uniquely yours.
