Class Description:

Free motion quilting is like 'drawing with your sewing machine'! You are in control of how and where your machine sews. You are free to stitch interesting and creative patterns and you don't need to continually turn your quilt through your sewing machine.

In this introductory workshop you will gain confidence and begin to develop your own style and designs. Daphne will share her best tips, the ones she has learned from over 20 years of free motion FUN!
