So what is this class, you may ask? It's a confidence-building free motion quilting class. I had heard so much from people who had taken a free motion quilting class but were petrified at the idea of actually quilting one of their quilts. Some people thought their machines weren't good enough. Some people had tried but were worried about their stitching not being up to par.
This class was made for those people. It's not a replacement for your free motion quilting class at your local shop. It can be taken either before or after you take the "official" free motion class. I like to say that taking free motion quilting is like taking drivers' ed and taking my Rinky Dink class is like driving around in an abandoned parking lot with your older sister. No one will get hurt.
In Rinky Dink we don't do feathers. We don't do cables or scrolls or even pebbles. All we do are three or four very basic designs. The idea of the class is to get you used to moving with the machine. At some point you'll get that feeling, that feeling that you've become comfortable and want to do more. This class is to help get you to that point just a little bit more easily.
So, if you can't come to my lecture at QuiltExpo (it's all three days and only $10), then be sure to try to catch the full class at an upcoming shop. And if you learned about me through this website, I'd love to hear from you!
