Free-motion quilting class, Saturday in Cleveland, TN

Intro to Free-motion Quilting class.
Beginner level—no free-motion experience necessary!
After a fabulous 2 days of quilting with the Huntsville quilters [more details and pics to come], I'll be teaching my Intro to Free-motion Quilting on a home sewing machine again this Saturday, January 24 at Hyderhangout Quilt Fabric and More in Cleveland, TN.

We had a packed classroom last year when I taught at this shop and the students came away with inspiration, confidence and new free-motion designs they wanted to try... and a confirmation that there are indeed NO Quilt Police!

So, what about it?

Would you like to learn how to do quilt something like this...

 or get some tips on how to quilt this?

Contact Susan at (423) 715-2908 to reserve a spot (if there are any left).

Then, I'll be back at Hyderhangout on February 7 for a liberating and fun piecing technique class. I'm teaching Angle Improv where "the measurements are made up and the points don't count." While you're at it, sign up for a double-header!

Teaching quilting classes in Huntsville this weekend

My friends at Huntsville Sew and Vac have invited me back to teach for two days! I had a great time last year hanging out with a delightful group of quilters, Donna the owner, and her terrific staff.

This weekend, January 16 - 17, I'll be teaching 3 quilting classes: "Intro to Free-motion Quilting" on a domestic machine, "Circle in a Square" reverse appliqué table runner, and my newest class, "Fillers, Spillers and Thrillers."

If you live nearby or you'll be in the Huntsville area, give them a call (256) 536-3757 and join us for a class or two—or three. Check their web site for a special class bundle price.
"Fillers, Spillers and Thrillers"

We'll be dropping the feed dogs and putting the pedal to the metal with lots of free-motion quilting. 
 Get ready to do some stitching!
And bring your sketchbook—drawing and designing will be happening in the Fillers class.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again!
