    Go to Nashville and on your way south pick me up!!

  2. I am sorry you struggle with insomnia, Roseanne! That can be so frustrating. I used to have more trouble with that when I was still teaching – a glass of milk and about 20 minutes of Candy Crush (so boring, lol!) would sometimes help. 🙂 I keep thinking I should focus more on learning FMQ, stippling at the very least, but stop short of actually practicing. A class for you and Sue sounds like fun!

    I hate insomnia, enough said! Go to any class you can. I watch online classes but not the same as “being there”. I find doing it on a fat quarter size is so different from wrangling a quilt in a domestic machine too. But I keep trying.

    My one piece of advice is don’t be discouraged after only one three hour class. Like any other skill, it will take hours of practice, but all of a sudden, it will click and you’ll be on your way. A hands on class will show you the basics. There are some great bloggers, You-tube videos, and books (check out your public library), to help you along. Mostly just relax and have fun and don’t expect a masterpiece on your first try.

    I have good intentions to start those FMQ exercises. I’ll get there, just not right now.

  6. Anytime you can take a class is good, inspiration and learning come from many places. I like taking longarm classes every chance I get! I also have a portable Janome Gem that I can take with me for sewing and quilt classes, well worth the investment so I don’t have to lug a heavy machine.

    Roseanne: Cindy wants us to go to Nashville too! We loved the classes we took a the Int’l Quilt Show in Chicago. I hope you get the chance to go to one or both of theses classes.

    I’ve been meaning to quilt along with that first link but I just haven’t done it. Maybe for the summer I can give it a whirl. I hate changing up the feet on my machine to do all this which is so lame. The course catalogue is out for Quilt Con. If you go maybe I can meet you there. I’ve convinced my husband that he needs to take a holiday with me.

    Oh yes you will be glad you took the class and it’s not all that far from you. I have taken several lecture long arm classes and the light bulb does come on! You will be in the right place to get help should you need it. Craftsy is another venue you might want to think about. They have some great teachers there too. I am headed to the MN show today also-meeting up with Wendy and friends:)

  10. I think any classes you take in free motion will give you little nuggets of knowledge, and hands on in a class will be helpful. Your acronym dilemma had me giggling. I can totally relate! I’m headed to the MN quilt show today. Yippee!
