Patsy Thompson first learned to sew in a six-week sewing course at the local Singer store, and she's been hooked ever since! Patsy was a hand quilter for her first 25-plus years in quilting and struggled to learn the art of free motion machine quilting. It wasn't easy! Her work has been exhibited in quilt shows and juried exhibitions across the United States, including the American Quilter's Society show in Paducah, Kentucky.
This hands-on class will teach you the basics of ruler-guided free motion quilting using your home sewing machine. For all the details and the supply list, see the Programs page.
Patsy says of the Free Motion Quilting workshop, "This class is geared to creating a good foundation of free motion skills that will serve you well as you continue practicing and move on toward more challenging designs. Let me help take the fear out of free motion quilting so you can discover the fun of it." For all the details and the supply list, see the Programs page.
The cost to join the guild or renew your membership is $30. Membership dues for a new member joining after April 1 of the current year will be prorated to a $15.00 membership. A new member is defined as a person that has not previously joined the guild. Print out the Membership Application Form and mail your check to the address on the form.
