TERI LUCAS – Free-Motion Quilting:  Choose Your Own Adventure (Zoom)

Saturday, 20 January 2024
9:00 am to 3:30 pm (Zoom)
$50 members / $70 non-members


Do you remember the Choose Your Own Adventure books? They were such fun and, like our quilting, endlessly unique. In this workshop you get to choose your free-motion quilting adventure. Choose the well-traveled path and focus on stitching basic designs to help get you familiar and comfortable with free-motion quilting. Choose off-trail, and create new motifs, play with color, and explore both thread weight and stitch density. Choose the switchback, twisting and turning between the well-traveled and the off-trail adventures.
