Bethanne NemeshIf you’ve been to a major quilt show in the last few years you’ve probably seen some stunning quilts (usually with a big ribbon on them) by the incredibly talented longarm quilter Bethanne Nemesh. Bethanne is an author, an amazing teacher, and one of my personal quilting heroes. The workmanship in her quilts is stunning, and now you can learn from the woman herself!

I’m so excited to finally announce Bethanne will be teaching 5 classes here at Quilted Joy, September 21-23. There will be 2 hands on longarm classes, 2 design/draw classes, and 1 domestic sewing machine class.

Take a look at the detailed class schedule below. You can register for individual classes or attend all of the classes and lectures through the Bethanne Nemesh Package for $399. Please note there aren’t many spots available in these classes since many of them are hands on classes on our longarm machines. If you’d like to register, do it now so you don’t miss your chance! All fees are fully refundable if you cancel more than 30 days from the event. If you cancel less than 30 days from the event, you are welcome to sell your spot to a friend, but we cannot refund your registration.[hr]

Learning to freehand unique quilting motifs to match a quilt’s theme or client’s need is one of the single most freeing things a quilter can do to liberate themselves from patterns, marking, and stress. Bethanne will teach you how to break apart complex shapes, and put them on a spine, much like a feather, in order to greatly expand your freehanding abilities beyond the simple swirls, loops, and feathers that dominate quilting. All motifs are taught very progressively to build your confidence and your muscle memory…so no drawing ability is needed! Leave class confidently quilting everything from oak leaves and flowers to baby rattles and ribbons.Students will share an APQS longarm machine and will have their own space for quilting.

Sampler quilts, with their different blocks can sometimes be the hardest of all to quilt, leading to “stand and stare” syndrome. Bethanne will share her popular mid-custom technique of eliminating back tracking in quilting and the majority of stitch in the ditch while combining piecing elements to create dramatic secondary designs to unify samplers (or any block quilt). Don’t sacrifice the “WOW” factor of custom…but DO give up full custom’s time commitment![hr]

Bethanne will share her unique finish details which have been proven winners in shows across the country in her quilts. Students will make small samples that feature beaded bias applique, beaded piping, swag piping, beaded knife edge binding as well as an introduction to the use of Derwent Inktense pencils.
