In the Classroom: Tin Lizzie Demo

The Tin Lizzie is a long arm sewing machine with a movable foot designed specifically for quilts. Users can move the arm of the machine freely over large pieces of fabric. SAIC has one in the Fiber & Material Studies Department where I hang out most days. This Saturday I learned how to use this incredible piece of equipment. I started working on a small piece with the machine and I look forward to experimenting with its ability draw long flowing lines in thread.
