HQ Weekend - Free-Motion Quilting. You Can Do It!

Join National Educator Chris Sousa for two days of classes on the Handi Quilter quilting systems.  Four different classes to introduce you to the different techniques you can use to finish your quilts yourself!

Ready to tackle free-motion quilting?  It's as easy as starting with a few simple shapes!  By beginning with drawing, you can develop an inventory of free motion designs that you can stitch out continuously.  Fun fills, creative borders, and easy blocks will all be demonstrated.  Quilting out beautiful designs using free motion techniques will take your skills to the next level.

Instructor Name:
Harriet Carpanini, HQ National Educator
Instructor Bio:
Harriet Carpanini tried her hand at many different crafts while raising her three children as a stay-at-home mom, but quilting is the one she took off and ran with. Wanting to finish her own quilts, she bought her first Handi Quilter machine in 2004, the HQ Sixteen. She started her home business, The Last Stitch, a year later.

In 2007, and many quilts later, when Handi Quilter began its national educator program, Harriet became one of the first educators. She began traveling the country and internationally, teaching her love of longarm quilting. She upgraded her machine to a HQ Fusion? with Pro-Stitcher, and has added the HQ Infinity? to her studio. She continues her successful business while meeting new students and seasoned quilters from around the world at store events and shows. Handi Quilter opened doors she never dreamed of.

Harriet?s love of clamshell quilting led her to write Inside the Shell, a book featuring creative fills for clamshell quilting. She also was published in McCall?s magazine, Heritage Quilts Made Modern.
