Free-Motion Quilting Weekend in Portland

I'm thrilled to share a new local class offering I have. And for those of you who aren't local, it would be a great reason to take a trip to Portland, if I do say so myself! I've scheduled a two-day beginner's free-motion quilting workshop in January at my local quilt shop, Modern Domestic.

This class is exactly the way I love to teach free-motion quilting: small class size (we limit to 12), and only 3 hours of class a day so no one gets exhausted. Everyone comes back the next day fresh and full of energy and with the added benefit of having had a night of sleep, which research reveals helps us learn complex tasks; tasks like free-motion quilting!

The staff at Modern Domestic are happy to make recommendations for nearby places to stay if you're thinking of traveling to Portland for the weekend. And I'm happy to advise on local restaurants and sightseeing. It's always fun to have visitors!

If you're looking for a more advanced class, I also have another grid quilting class on the calendar. 

And I'd love to hear what you think of the two-day class idea. I feel like I often see my student's energy flagging around hour 5 in an all day class. Have you ever gotten burned out in a 6 hour quilting class?

Oh what fun it would be to take a class with you in Portland (or anyplace).

I would LOVE to take a class with you. Six hours is fine but we do need stretch breaks and brain breaks as well as a lunch break.

I've never taught a workshop that's gone for six hours. Seems exhausting for both the students AND the instructor. Five hours is plenty, with at least a half-hour lunch break.

Having never taken an in-person FMQ class, I have no idea if I would prefer a one day or two day class.
My thought is that the two day class would help me to reinforce what I learned on day one.
