'Mix it Up' Improv Free Motion Quilting


Sunday 9th February 2020 - 1.15 - 4.15

Add To Cart

Come and have a fun time with like minded people. Have fun learning a new skill.

What: Perhaps you have had a go at free motion quilting before, you may have attended my First Steps class and mastered your favourite design, but now fancy mixing it up and trying some ‘graffiti’ quilting.  During this skills session I will demonstrate how to mix different quilting designs together to create an improv piece of quilting. You will practise this and create a mini piece of art that you could turn into a mini quilt or cushion after the class.   This session will be fun and relaxed, come and build your confidence.

Who: This workshop is aimed at people who already know how to use their sewing machine competently but who want to learn a new skill. You will know how to set your machine up for Free Motion Quilting and will be fairly confident in one or two designs. This is perfect for people who have attended my First Steps class.

(NOTE: in the morning of the same day, I am running a short beginners FMQ class. Why not book both and use the morning to ‘warm up’ for this one! If you book both sessions (£30 each) you will get a £5 refund, so it will cost £55 instead of £60 for the full day. For details of that class, click here.)

When: Sunday 9th February 2020 - 1.15 - 4.15pm

Where: The workshop will be held in Hook, conveniently situated just off the M3 (Jn 5), in Hook Community centre. Free parking available. Train station about a 15 minute walk away. The hall is upstairs and has a stair-lift but no actual lift, so sadly isn’t accessible for wheelchairs. I do normally have my helpful husband with me to help carry machines upstairs!

How Much: £30 - this includes: 3 hours of tuition and the class notes; tea, coffee, delicious cake and biscuits.

(Booking more than one class and need a payment plan? It’s possible to pay a non refundable deposit and then pay the remaining balance in stages with full payment due no later than 6 weeks before the class. Contact me to discuss.)

What to Bring:

  • Your Sewing Machine (in full working order) with pedal, manual and cables - Your machine must have the capability to do Free Motion, by either lowering the feed dogs or covering them. If in doubt please contact me before booking.

  • Darning presser foot

  • Materials for the class (a list will be sent to you after booking)
