This hands on class will teach basic skills for free motion quilting on your home sewing machine. We will draw designs on muslin fabric and practice the basic techniques of traight line and free motion quilting. I will help you build confidence in your machine quilting with cross hatch, fillers, stippling, pebbles, echoing and swirls. You will leave class with samples of techniques, you can use in your quilts at home.

"Jamie Bennett does flawless free motion quilting. Her beautiful stitching runs the gamut from classic patterns to innovative modern quilting designs. Stop in at Quilter's Fancy and see the samples of her stunning machine quilting. You, too, can accomplish beautiful quilting and finish wallhangings and quilts right at home after taking this class with Jamie. She is a top notch professional," Cindy Oravecz said. "I am taking this class as well.''

These may be the last few classes we will have Jamie at the shop to teach as she has family committments out west.
