Gina2-smallGet ready to be INSPIRED! The week-long Longarm Open House is coming up next week at the Sacramento location of Meissner’s Sewing Center and one of the special guests that you don’t want to miss is Gina Perkes from Payson, Arizona.

A long-time longarm quilter, Gina is an amazing artist with any kind of free-motion quilting. Earlier this year, she took the APQS prize for the Best Longarm Workmanship award at the AQS Paducah Quilt Show. Take one look at her quilt, Nostalgia, and you can immediately see it was a prize well-deserved. This beautiful quilt now resides in The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY.

Gina will be at Meissner’s on Thursday December 17th and Friday, December 18th. She’s bringing a “ton” of quilts and wearable art pieces to inspire and educate you on longarm and free-motion quilting. Along with sharing her Trunk Show, Gina will lecture and demo a variety of quilting techniques including how to prepare quilts for stitching and planning quilting designs to give life to your quilt top. Bring your questions, your creative curiosity, and your thirst for knowledge so you can expand your skills and aspire to move up to Gina’s level of quilting expertise. She’ll be signing her book, Mastering the Art of Longarm Quilting and showing her tools that help make it all possible.

Join us for this FREE event that goes on all week, December 14-18 at the Sacramento store. Sign up now!
