445 Machine Quilting Forum II
Calling all machine quilting enthusiasts! Six of the top machine quilting artists from the Quilt Festival faculty will present this focus, coordinated by Jenny K. Lyon. Each will give a 20-minute digital presentation as they demonstrate their topic listed below or a show-and-tell of their particular expertise. Then spend the last 45 minutes visiting each machine quilting artist to view their samples up close or purchase items for sale. Machine Quilting Forum I, 355, follows the same format, but topics and teachers vary.
Go home with a booklet consisting of a handout from each presenter, new machine quilting skills, and lots of enthusiasm.
