If you're ready to begin or improve your machine quilting skills, this class is for you. This is a "hands on" approach to teaching machine quilting with lots of opportunities to both watch the stitches flow and try your hand at it too. We'll practise on quilt sandwiches. You'll learn how to add a motif such as a leaf or flower, basic stippling, straight lines and quilt stencil work. Pick up one of our kits or a panel to show off your newly learned stitches.
