Introduction to Machine Quilting Class

Village Dry Goods and I teamed to do a local workshop prior to HMQS.  Our Introduction to Machine Quilting class was too big for the shop so we met in the fire station kitchen (the large meeting room was scheduled with important political meetings.)

It was a little crazy with 15 quilters learning the basics but I love to see the excitement as students figure out that they can free motion quilt.

When quilters get together we make connections.  During introductions I discovered the mother of my son-in-law's business partner was in the class!

We often have a machine or two which do not want to cooperate but we can usually coax them into working with a few adjustments. In this class we had Singer, Bernina, Phaff, Viking, Brother, and Janome machines. One students decided it was time to replace an ancient Singer and another said the $100 box store machine had to go. Did you notice the wood extension table a nice husband made?
