From Fear to Joy in Free Motion Quilting 101


Starting 3rd January – 8 weeks online course for beginners in Free Motion Quilting.

2022 is the year to get into FMQ – Get rid of your fear – Learn new skill with award winner quilter Vendulka Battais




8 Weeks course to help you gain confidence with Free-motion quilting aimed at complete BEGINNERS.

A prerecorded lesson will be released each Monday containing two videos – one with practical theory and the other one with sewing prompts. Your recommended commitment is 1 hour / week – max half an hour to watch both videos and three times a week 10 minutes practising that week’s quilting exercise/homework. You can watch your lessons whenever you’d like and as many times as you’d like.

Look at the next tab to see the schedule of topics covered in the theory lessons and testimonials of previous students.

The course will be accessible through our website – in the My Account section of the top menu. Once they are released you will have access to all the lessons and videos for 4 years* and you will be able to watch them as many times you’d like.

We will have three ZOOM sessions for Q&A. Mondays 6PM – 24th Jan, 21st Feb and 14th March.

We will have private online place for questions, sharing our experiences and general support.

* I’d like to give you life-time access to this course, but I can’t guarantee that, but I can promise at least 48 months, if I ever decide to take the course down, I will give you the option to download the lessons if you wish to.

“Vendulka is very inspiring and positive as well as being realistic.”

” I loved having the luxury to take it slowly in one’s own home and on one’s own machine rather than feeling one is has to keep up with others.”

Informative, gradual increasing your skills, not trying to be an expert at the beginning. Clearly demonstrated and explained throughout. Inspiring!”

This is a brilliant introduction to Free Motion Quilting, tutor clear, kind and precise.”
