​​BASIC FREE MOTION QUILTING – Beginner
It is amazing how much Pam will show you and have you try at this 2 ½ hour class. You will begin with easy loopy designs, practice, and move on through other designs that will encourage you to “spread your wings” . You will get to practice after each tutorial. You will leave this class with knowledge and skills to continue to practice at home. The key to “getting the hang” of free motion quilting is PRACTICE, PRACTICE and more PRACTICE. HINT: a small glass of wine in the evening before you practice is a great help.
