Saturday, August 19th. 9am to 12pm, Cormorant Room
with Gina Perkes

Feathers are amazing! They can be stylized and are incredibly versatile. Gina will show you how to find your own unique style in your feather work. There are a variety of techniques for drafting and stitching feathers which can be used in different applications from block and border motifs to freehand work­experiment with them all! You will then explore the exciting world of filler designs which will make your feathers jump right off the quilt! Gina will show you how to avoid backtracking when an heirloom look is desired and how to select threads and achieve control for intricate work. 

Gina Perkes classes are appropriate for longarm, sitdown and domestic machines. There is no need to bring a machine. The classes will be primarily lecture/demo, but we will have a longarm machine and a sitdown machine in the room. There will be opportunity for hands-on as time allows.  
Please bring a sketchbook/tablet and pen or pencil.

Class attendees receive free multi-day admission to Stitcher Paradise Marketplace and In-store coupon to Happy Apple Quilts/Florida Quilting Center
