Take your machine quilting to the next level as you create your own interesting patterns without templates - learn those fabulous free motion "doodle" designs that you do not need to mark!! During this incrediblely fun and creative class, we will experiment with a wide variety of beautiful decorative threads, even those tough ones that keep breaking in your machine! You will learn how easy it is to stitch exquisite threads from the bobbin of your sewing machine. We will even machine couch designs with funky yarns!
