Have you been thinking about beginning to modern quilt, but are not sure where to start? Beginning Modern Quilting with Meissner Instructor Ellen Schmidt is a class to consider. Ellen will share the process of setting up your machine, as well as tips for accurate rotary cutting. In this class, you will also have the opportunity to test the Accuquilt cutting system, which will simplify and shorten the cutting process. With dates available in both Sacramento and Roseville, Ellen’s Beginning Modern Quilting will also allow you to explore easy piecing techniques, sewing straight seams and cutting units all in order to create a unique quilt top of your own. The Roseville sessions begin March 7th!
