I'm teaching Free-motion Quilting at John C. Campbell Folk School

Way back in 2018 or 2019, my friend, Karen, from Bless My Stitches Quilt Shop, invited me to teach a workshop at the John C. Campbell Folk School. Because of the disruption of the pandemic, the folk school was closed for some time so my class didn't come to pass...  until this year! I'll be headed to Brasstown, North Carolina this coming weekend to teach a favorite workshop of mine, Intro to Free-motion Quilting!

Quilts for free-motion quilting workshop Show and Tell.

My workshop is full! I have 10 students and I get a teacher assistant. This will be a treat for me. 

Gathering class materials

I bring a big pile of quilts for show and tell when I teach this workshop. Large, small, bed and wall quilts are real-life examples of what can be accomplished with free-motion quilting. I've got several sketchbooks, stitch samples, and other supplies too.

Sketchbooks are a major part of FMQ [free-motion quilting] prep.

I pieced two scrappy quilt tops to use for warm-up and demonstrations. These will eventually turn into charity quilts for the kitties.

It will be wonderful to be back in the classroom again, meeting new quilters, and dropping the feed dogs.
