About the Modern Machine Quilting with Style workshop:

Take your quilts to the next level by adding depth and dimension to your quilts. The secret is learning to let go of perfection by practicing asymmetrical textures that require little to no marking. Gain confidence with walking foot wonders, then move on to free-motion favorites. Students will practice on sample “sandwiches” and may bring in their tops for a discussion of possible quilting ideas. Students should have a basic understanding of their sewing machines and know how to switch between feet easily.
