Instructor: Liz Kettle
Once you go free motion you never go back…
Drop those feed dogs and discover just how much fun free motion stitching is! Drawing with your needle is easy once you learn the tools that make your stitching easier. A great class for beginners as well as experienced sewists.
Material fee $15 includes fabrics, stabilizers and thread
We have Bernina 350series machines in class for you to use but you are welcome to bring your own machine. Just make sure it has the ability to drop or cover the feed dogs (teeth) and bring a free motion darning or quilting foot. Be sure to bring all your power cords and your manual if you aren’t familiar with free motion stitching on your machine.

Instructor Bio: Why I Sew:
I have been intrigued with stitching since I was a child. I have never lost the feeling that something magical happens when you combine fabric and stitch. There are just so many possibilities….will this fabric want to be a bag, a journal cover, or a skirt or become part of a special story in collage? Fabric is such a malleable material. It can be draped, sculpted, textured or smooth. Stitching is so incredibly satisfying….why would anyone not sew?
