Free Motion Quilting

In this class, we will get minds, muscles, materials, and our machines ready for successful free motion machine quilting.  Class meets twice, two weeks apart, in order to have ample practice time in between. In the first class, we will concentrate on stitch length, smooth curves, and a couple of basic designs.  In the second class, we will take on more designs.
