1. What will I need in order to do the things Melinda is doing?
Really, the biggest thing is to convince yourself that you can do what she is doing. Melinda’s teaching style is very encouraging because she knows that once you face your fears, you can tackle just about anything. It is also important to have a basic working knowledge of your sewing machine. Beyond that, gather some thread, cozy up to your machine and practice quilt, and turn on the lessons. As you practice the content of this class, we feel confident that you will want to use this technique to add quilting depth to many of your quilting projects.
2. Will I learn specific stitches?
Melinda shows how to make various stitches on the practice quilt. She also covers things that challenge us in free-motion quilting like hand placement, controlling the fabric as it moves underneath the needle, and tension.
3. What if I have questions?
We recommend that you watch the class in its entirety and become familiar with the downloadable materials. At that point, if something is unclear, go to the tab that allows you to ask a question and Melinda will get back with you via email. Please do not contact iquilt instructors by telephone.
4. When can I start the class?
We know you are excited to get started. After you have purchased the class, you can enjoy it anywhere and anytime you have the Internet. The class belongs to you, so watch it as many times as you like!
