Machine Quilting Basics - Kelly Ashton

Do you love to piece tops but cannot seem to find the time to get the hand quilting done?  Then this is the class for you!  Kelly will teach you the basics of straight line and free-motion quilting so you can finish your tops more quickly!
NOTE: Kelly strongly recommends that you bring your own sewing machine to this class! It is very helpful to learn the techniques in this class on the machine that you generally use at home.
