September always heralds "Back to School" and at the LQS, that means a new schedule of classes. I have been teaching FMQ, a beginner and advanced for about 18 months now. I really feel good about my Beginner level class. I take the time to talk about needles, threads, battings, basting, setting up the machine and sewing space, as well as introducing great accessories to make it more fun, and maybe a little less intimidating.
I have made several samples to use, but I get tired of looking at the same old stuff, so I cranked out a new class sample:
I used polyester thread on the top and cotton on the bottom so my students can compare the two.
I have a BIG announcement coming up, and once that is in the rear view mirror, I am going to make a large, densely quilted sample to hang in the shop.
So many quilts to make, so little time!
