From fear to joy in Free Motion Quilting

Welcome to the course and thank you so much for signing up. I LOVE free motion quilting and I really hope some of my enthusiasm will rub off you as well for this amazing technique. Firstly I want you to know that this is completely new way of sewing and even if you have been using your sewing machine for many years, this will feel like nothing you have done with it before. But it’s OK, it will just take some practice and getting used to, you will also need some patience and non-judgement as you’re learning new technique. And lastly, drop your expectations – you can only compare yourself to my skills once you have done 10 years of quilting on a daily basis. But what you can expect is to have an understanding of the technique, confidence to quilt a project and start your journey to excellence – how long it’s going to be only depends on how much miles you’re willing to put in. It is a journey and I welcome you on it!!

First lesson will be released on the 6th September, but please watch this video where I’m explaining all the tools you might need and how to get yourself ready.

Requirements – part one

We will have two zoom sessions during the course of the seven weeks for some Q&A, but I’ll be in touch with the exact dates and links etc by email.

I’m also preparing some online safe space where we can all ask questions, share about the progress of your homework and all together feel a bit more connected with other course participants – as much as we can from the comfort of our homes. I’ll be adding some info in here later on and also sending details by email about how to join.
