Renegade Thread Play (a free motion quilting class)
Saturday, May 13, 2017
9 am - 5 pm
2-hour lunch break so you can see the quilt show!

This is a technique class where you learn how Melinda sews through layers of fusible web, while adding highlights, shadow and detail to her award-winning quilts.
Learn how to master your machine while doing free motion quilting. Melinda has lots of tricks that help you feel more confident about doing free motion quilting. We are breaking all the rules while adding color and design to our flowers.


A required $45 kit helps speed up class so you get the most out of your experience and includes:

  • Thread play workbooks (25 pages)
  • "Pansy" flower pattern to start in class and complete at home.
  • A package of assorted fabric shapes that are already fused and cut out.
  • 3 spools of Sulky 30-40 weight rayon thread plus the right needle.
