I am so glad you are joining my class. This is one of my favorite classes to teach. It opens the door into the world of quilting without feeling like you must know how to doodle. I hold your hand and help you with the walking foot and quilting several quilt sandwiches. This will be lots of fun! Gigi

- Blue tape is fun to have and so easy to use, but not necessary.
- A notebook, a highlighter and pen during class.
