May 2011 Meeting Details

Introduction to Free Motion Quilting Class
May 14, 2011
10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Location: TBA (Brentwood/Franklin area)
Class Fee: $3 per person (will be charged only if group size requires us to rent a room for the day) payable on the day of the event

The class will be taught by Stefanie Williams

Required to bring:
Sandwiches for Practicing (batting of choice between to layers of muslin or scrap fabric 12" - 18" square - you will need 3-4 of these for practice.
Sewing Machine and basic supplies (if your feed dogs do not drop, please bring the plate that will cover them up)
Extension Cord

Optional to bring:
Extension table for your machine
Quilting gloves

This class will provide you with the knowledge and skills to have more confidence in your FMQ abilities. We will focus on basic stippling, but will discuss other FMQ patterns and how to apply those to the basic principles. Free Motion Quilting is a skill that only gets better the more you do it. It can be intimidating to jump in, but if you know the principles, you can apply them to just about any project. At the end of the class, you should be comfortable enough to go home and FMQ your first project with confidence!

Sign-ups for this class are now closed.
