After just ONE session with Joy you will achieve amazing things. Joy will teach you how it's done, all the tips and tricks as well as show you how to work out what quilting your projects need. Joy will teach you BUCKET LOADS of quilting styles and tecchniques - This is one class you definitely don't want to miss. Please Note: This class is only offered every 3-4 months

Class includes all requirements (kit), so just bring your machine! You DO NOT need a 'flash' sewing machine... If your machine can free motion stitch, even if it's as old as the hills, YOU CAN QUILT! However, you will need a WALKING FOOT and a POGO/QUILTING/DARNING FOOT to complete this class.
