Elizabeth took a class from Marisela Rumberg called “Quilt your own Quilts”. Marisela’s pledge is that after taking her class you will never again need to pay to send your quilts out to a long arm quilter.
This class was divided in two parts. The morning was spent learning to quilt with the walking foot on your sewing machine while the afternoon was about free motion quilting. Marisela had many tips to offer and the class was interspersed with demos, practice, and brain research all designed to keep your blood flowing and participant’s backs and brains from getting tired.
Elizabeth highly recommends her class to anyone who wants to improve or learn to machine quilt. She teaches in Northern Virginia at The Quilters Studio in Fairfax and is a member of the Studio Fiber Arts group at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA.
