Love quilting with a longarm machine? Are pantographs your jam, but you’re ready to branch out a little? Sometimes the hardest part is just knowing where to start! Learn the basics of free motion quilting on a longarm machine during my Breaking into Free Motion class!
In this class we’ll spend a relaxing afternoon quilting on the longarm machines. You will learn the building blocks of free motion quilting. And I promise you already know all of these shapes by heart. Because free motion quilting is just doodling with needle and thread! In fact, before you start quilting on the machines I’ll have you warm up by doodling the shapes on paper.
While we draw and stitch, I’ll help you discover your free motion quilting “happy place.” Your happy place will be quilting designs you can use on countless quilts. And it’s a great starting place for more complex designs when you’re ready to start challenging yourself.
This is a hands on class with two people per machine and materials are included with the class. You might want to bring along a snack, but we’ll take care of everything else! In addition to taking home the quilt sandwich you work on in class, you will also get a worksheet and handout filled with design inspirations for your next quilts.
I’d love for you to join me for the Breaking into Free Motion Class! I’m teaching this class on Saturday May 11, 12:30pm-3:30pm. Space is limited, and there are only a couple spots left! Click here to sign up for the class.
This class is perfect for beginners! Just keep in mind, I designed this class for people who already have some experience using a longarm quilting machine. If you’ve never quilted with a machine before you might consider looking into our longarm rental certification class instead.
