Lynne will be teaching beginner FMQ techniques. Whether you’ve never taken a class or you’ve taken a class and since forgotten, Lynne will be sharing her experience. 

Here’s Lynne’s bio:

 I have been sewing since I was 7, buying my first machine at 12.  I didn’t start to quilting until 1994. For the first few quilts I did straight line quilting with my walking food.  My first attempt at free motion was when I realized I couldn’t turn a quilt to continue stitching so I dropped the feed dogs and free motion quilted in the ditch.  That was about 1998 and I have free motion quilted ever since.  I began teaching in 2007 when our guild set up a free motion mentorship program.  I have spoken at most of the guilds in the lower mainland and have taught from Powell River to Victoria and all over the lower mainland.  I love teaching people to quilt because for me it is the best part, or maybe just the most fun,  of quilt making.


Every time someone suggested a FMQ workshop, someone else would suggest Lynne, so we’re very excited to have her teach for us! The class will be limited to 15 people, so that everyone can get some hands on assistance.
