FMQ 101: Introduction to Modern Free Motion Quilting



If you have a giant pile of quilt tops finished or have just started piecing your first top and want to be able to do the quilting yourself, take this class! If you love to make bags and want to add your own quilting style, take this class! You do not need any prior experience with free-motion quilting. We will focus on a few approachable free-motion designs that can be easily tweaked in a variety of ways to create different looks. Prerequisite: Sew Basic or equivalent experience. Ages: 15 & up. Class Fee $40 for 1 session class.
