Still Teaching FMQ Classes
I started teaching FMQ classes last year at my local quilt shop, and I am happy to say that I am still teaching classes there. I teach about one beginning class every other month. I really enjoy sharing my love of free-motion quilting with my students. I have even had one student take my basics class twice. The classroom is a little small, so I have anywhere from three to eight students in each class.
I took a few pictures before my students came to share here on my blog. I demonstrate on one of the store machines, usually a Baby Lock Crescendo. I have some quilts and table runners on display and for examples at the front of the classroom.
Then I displayed my most recent finish, a class sample, and my first FMQ project on the wall.
I tell my students to not compare their beginning to my middle. I think it helps them to see where I started with my free-motion quilting.
I look forward to teaching more classes this year.
