Fearless Free Motion Sewing Workshop
Fear not, it's all the rage, an itch to stitch! Spend the whole class time on your sewing machine to explore free motion sewing techniques to create a colorful, mini art quilt stitch sampler. Learn the physical motion and movement of fabric under a sewing machine needle. Use colorful threads to create simple designs and shapes. Get lost in organic moving lines, dimensional textured curves and Joanne's playful imagery created on a sewing machine. If you can doodle, you can do this. No drawing experience required, really! This will be the beginning of a new obsession creating textile art unique to YOU. You're going to love this!
