About the event

This is a beginner’s class for quilters who want to learn how to free motion quilt.

In this class you will learn the basics of free motion quilting on your domestic machine. You will be able to practice at your own pace.  You will learn how one stitch can be used to develop several designs. We will use paper and pencil exercises to develop your muscle memory. At the end of the session, you will have several small practice pieces to take with you. Free motion quilting requires lots of practice so if you are ready lets get started.
