The May VancouverMQG will be a member’s spotlight and Trunk show with Laura Gates!!

Laura is a longarmer quilter and has been a member of VMQG since 2016. She enjoys quilting on her Gammill machine in her home sewing room and over the past 5 years has learned so much about quilting in general, mainly from this wonderful community we’re all apart of.

Laura will sharing her longarm quilting process for some of the work she’s done on a few of her own quilts as well as quilts she’s stitched for others. Laura has gathered a photo gallery of quilts from some of our VMQG members plus a few from her collection that she had the pleasure of quilting.

Enjoy this trunk show of quilts as in which she will highlight things to consider when you go to a longarmer including:

  • What to ask when you contact a longarmer
  • How to determine what style of quilting to stitch
  • How to prepare your quilt top, backing and batting before you drop off a quilt

The Executive is very excited to see what Laura has to share!
