About the Event

Are you just starting out doing free motion quilting and interested in taking your skills to the next level? Come learn the basics of free motion quilting on our Innova longarm with Nancy Williams, longarm quilter for Social Justice Sewing Academy and owner of A Quilting Fool Longarm Studio.

In this class we will cover:

- Basics of "drawing" with a longarm and working with starter patterns

- The role texture plays in your quilt

- The importance of doodling

- Where to find design inspiration

Skill level: While it is helpful if you have some experience on a longarm before taking this class, it is not required. However, in order to rent time on the Innova longarm at Hello Stitch, you will have to take a Longarm Certification class separately.

Supply List: All supplies included. You will be working on a muslin sample for class.

About the instructor: 

Nancy Williams has been sewing for longer than she cares to say - clothing for the kids and grands; a few wedding dresses; some tailoring.  She began piecing quilts about 30 years ago and mostly quilting them on her domestic machine.  After renting time on long arm quilting machines and liking it (a lot), she decided to purchase her own. Since then, she has been honing her art and skills on personal quilts, donation quilts and quilts of those she is honored to be trusted with.
