In just a few short weeks, I’m heading to my favorite quilt show – Wisconsin Quilt Expo, in Madison, Wisconsin, Sept 7-9, 2017. Why is WQE my favorite quilt show? Well, first off, it was created by my dear friend, Nancy Zieman, so I know every detail has been covered. Second, it’s in Wisconsin in early September. Wisconsin literally sparkles in late summer. Third, the food – oh my. They don’t call it America’s Dairy Land for nothing! Fourth – the people. I’ve never met a population that pitches in with such gusto and a smile. If you don’t know what I mean, consider this: Green Bay Packer fans VOLUNTEER to shovel out the stadium on a snowy game day. In fact, they stand in line to do so! Oh, I love Wisconsin.
I am honored to teach one of my favorite topics, Turn Your Embroidery Machine into a Longarm, at 1:00 every day. Tickets are on sale now and from what I hear – going fast!
I can’t wait to meet with fellow quilters especially those who want to get more out of their embroidery machines and finish those quilt tops they so lovingly created. I want to show them that it is possible to quilt an entire quilt – even a queen or king – on an embroidery machine. I’ve been doing this for years and along the way, I’ve made every mistake. Now, I can confidently finish my quilts. In my class, you’ll learn how to select designs for specific areas of the quilt, precisely place designs and handle all that bulk.

Custom designs (that fit perfectly into specific spaces.
