Creekside Quilting Newsletter 03/08/2022
Our Downton Abbey Retreat was a great success and everyone had fun! Many projects were started, some finished, and some completed to a good stopping point. We had people bring projects they had not touched in years and just needed motivation to get them started again! Our farthest guest was from London! The facility was terrfic! And even time in a tornado shelter, didn't keep people from stop sewing...they just worked on their hand sewing projects! We played lots of games, had lots of laughs and gave out lots of nice prizes....it was a memory-making, friend-making, quilt-making weekend! Here are a few pictures! What's New @ Creekside Quilting?

“I have taught for many years and taught a wide variety of classes. What I love most about sharing what I have learned is taking a beginner at whatever we are doing to a more confident crafter!
You CAN learn to quilt your own projects ~ let me walk you through the simple steps and show you how to chase away the “SCARE” of domestic machine free motion quilting! Pick up the simple basics of machine quilting along with tricks and techniques I have learned along the way to help you become a confident quilter! Go home with a sense of confidence and plenty of resources to begin your quilting journey! You MUST know your machine! ~ how to set your tension, lower your feed dogs, and make adjustments. Social distancing will not allow close one-on one work, but I will be there to coach you along the way!
