About the Event

Interested in honing your free-motion quilting skills? Want a technique that will not only teach you free-motion skills, but will allow you to include text on your quilts? Or quite simply, are you a FONT GEEK like instructor, Ashley Nickels? Well, this is the class for you!

In “Free-motion Typography,” we will explore different ways of creating text on quilts. To start, we’ll find a word or phrase to focus on for the class. Some might call this a mantra… think “I am a warrior,” or “I’ve got this.” Next, we will practice forming letters and phrases using Ashley's favorite block type. Then, we’ll explore YOUR style, and Ashely will teach you how to convert a font into free-motion text on your quilt. Finally, we’ll explore three-dimensionality and other tricks for incorporating your words into your quilts.

This class will include tips for successful free-motion quilting, applicable to any style of quilting. What could be more fun than quilting? Words on quilts, that’s what! AND using a MANTRA!? Come on!

Skill level: Beginner 102

Supplies: We will email you the supply list upon registration.

About the Instructor:

Ashley Nickels is a writer, teacher, and artist living in San Francisco, California. Growing up in Michigan surrounded by quilters and makers, she made her first nine-patch at age eight– and was designing her own bags by high school. She spent the first twelve years of her career as a classroom teacher in Spain and San Francisco, teaching both English and Spanish literature and language. In 2013, she took the leap and started her own business, and since then she has designed a unique, patent-pending Pop-open bag, taught quilting classes all over the country, and written articles for a variety of publications. These days you can find her teaching both in-person and online quilting and sewing classes to all ages, writing vignettes about her life and her journey, and constantly looking to connect the creative dots.
