“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!

  Seize this beautiful day, and keep on stitching!  karen steggerda
