Our Fall Class...

Announcing our Fall class with Christa Watson!

We are so excited to be able to bring Christa Watson to our guild to teach Modern Machine Quilting.  

Take your modern quilts to the next level by adding depth and dimension to your designs. The secret is learning to let go of perfection by practicing over a dozen different asymmetrical textures that require little to no marking of the quilt.Students will utilize both free-motion and walking foot techniques by practicing on small practice samples or leftover quilt blocks. Students may bring in their tops for a discussion of possible quilting ideas.

The class will be an all day event on October 8th, held at the West Newbury Old Town Hall in West Newbury, MA.  (For those of you like me, that's the one that looks like a church between two farms.)  We'll start at 10 a.m. (be sure to arrive around 9:30 to set up machines, grab snacks, and settle in), break for a catered lunch, and end at 5 p.m.  We'll have the full day to practice new techniques on our machines so that at the end of the day you can go home with the ability to replicate what you've learned.

Christa's book, Machine Quilting with Style, will be required for this class.  

Sign ups for this class will open on July 15.  There will be a PayPal button live on this blog at 8:00 a.m.  I will send out an email to let you know that you may start to sign up.  There are only 22 spots in this class and they will go first come, first serve.  In the event that we do not fill those spots within the guild, we will open the remaining spots to non-members on August 15.
