Learn all the ways you'll be using your form at home. From testing original and purchased designs for visual integrity, to forming underlays and structure for less stable top layers. From "trying on" patterns you're thinking about making to starting from scratch and listening to the fabric. Joe uses forms on a daily basis for the dozens of bodies he has to fit in Hollywood, and shares with you the many ways he, and you, can get the most from the body double form. After all, you can make fit and design changes to garments on your double so much more easily than you can when they are on your own body!

They float under traditional pieced blocks or appliqué shapes and often include more straight lines than traditional quilting. Kathy will review tips for needles, thread and tension, etc. for domestic machines. We will practice 5 designs used for fillers and learn to create your own thread quilted creatures too. I will review ruler work and you have time to practice if you bring your own machine quilting rulers.
