On the road to Springfield with Free-motion Quilting

Intro to Free-motion Quilting class
at The Fabric Shop in Springfield, TN
I'm elated that so many people are interested in learning to free-motion quilt lately. Whether quilters are threading a hand quilting needle, using the walking foot, or dropping the feed dogs to do the free-motion thread dance (like me!), it means that lots of lovely quilt tops are getting finished… so these quilts can be enjoyed!

Last Saturday, we celebrated National Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day by visiting our local shops, purchasing fabrics or gadgets for new projects, or taking a class. A huge Thank You goes out to our beloved, hard-working quilt shop owners for keeping us inspired with unique new fabric collections, encouraging our creativity, and offering classes so we can learn new techniques, improve our skills and share our passion for quiltmaking with each other.

This Saturday, January 31, I'll again be sharing my love for free-motion quilting in Springfield, TN at The Fabric Shop. Donna Sandidge, the shop's owner, had an overflowing response to a charity quilt sew-a-thon last weekend for Visit YLQS Day. She is following it up with my Intro to Free-motion Quilting class this Saturday. Back-to-back quilting Saturdays—what a blast!

There are a few seats available in the class, so call the shop immediately (615) 382-5600 or leave a message on The Fabric Shop's Facebook page so they can get your kit ready.

Here is a peek of what I'm bringing for Show and Tell.

So, if you want to see this quilting up close, come on out to The Fabric Shop in northern Tennessee for some free-motion quilting fun! I've got lots of information and inspiration to share.
