AQS Des Moines I’m on the faculty!

Teaching at a Quilt Show is so much fun.  From October 2nd through 5th I’ll be teaching with AQS in Des Moines, IA.  I’m excited, it’s a great show to teach for and I’ll be joining a great faculty with Linda M Poole, Charlotte Angotti, Anita Grossmon Solomon, Jan Krentz, Martha DeLeonardis, Weeks Ringle and more!  I’m really honored to teach with such an amazing group of quilters!

Wednesday Morning Beginner Free Motion Machine Quilting  Free-motion quilting on a home sewing machine is the best, especially when you know all of the tricks and tips that the “pros” use.  This class covers common challenges that quilters have when choosing batting and thread for their quilts, adjusting tension, and choosing the right needles.  Join the machine quilting club!

Wednesday Afternoon And Now What?!  Which came first the chicken or the egg? Who knows, but the burning question on quilters minds is… “how on earth do I quilt this?” Well, there are some great ways to figure this out including doodling on paper or clear vinyl. Bring a quilt to class to talk as a group about options for your quilt top.

Thursday Let Your Foot Loose Be Fancy & Free   Bored with stippling? Stitching in the ditch got you down? Let’s play with design, thread, fabric and batting to create some fun, one-of -a-kind quilts. This class is all about new-to-us motifs, using our intuition and going for it with machine quilting on a domestic sewing machine.

Friday afternoon Quilting is a Beautiful and Complicated Art (lecture) Well sometimes I certainly think so from hand and machine piecing to hand and machine quilting see a variety of quilts that share my journey as a quilter over the last 20 years.

Saturday morning Beginner Free Motion Machine Quilting Free-motion quilting on a home sewing machine is the best, especially when you know all of the tricks and tips that the “pros” use.  This class covers common challenges that quilters have when choosing batting and thread for their quilts, adjusting tension, and choosing the right needles.  Join the machine quilting club!

These probably, no wait, these are different descriptions than the AQS website. After some simple thinking and encouragement this change feels right. Later this week I’ll update the classes & lectures page with the new descriptions.  And now for the big announcement!!
I’m also adding a new class

Wait for it

rainy days and mondays 003Go Mini or Go Home!

If great things come in small packages, then miniatures quilts are the greatest! We will learn to confidently piece log cabin blocks from 3/4″ strips and take the mystery out of quilting the smallest of quilts. Go Mini or Go Home makes great use of the patchwork foot and free-hand embroidery foot (open toe quilting foot) and learning how to make simple adjustments on our machines for the greatest success.
