Our September Featured Speaker

The featured speaker for our September guild meeting is Kim Jamieson-Hirst of Chatterbox Quilts, who will be zooming to us from Alberta, Canada. She will speak about “How to Conquer Your Fear of Free Motion Quilting”.  What are most quilters afraid of? Free motion quilting! In this presentation, Kim addresses the reasons behind this fear and how to overcome them and actually enjoy free motion quilting.
Kim is a teacher and creator of several quilting courses, such as First Steps into Free Motion Quilting, Stitch Composer Basics, and others. Kim shares her quilting knowledge through her YouTube channel, Chatterbox Quilts’ Facebook group, and her private online membership, The Quilter’s Way, where the focus is on free motion quilting. Kim’s patterns and articles have been featured in various quilting magazines and she has been a guest on several quilting podcasts. Her YouTube videos have been viewed by thousands of quilters who appreciate her upbeat personality and easy to understand tutorials.
Kim believes that quilting is more than stitching an accurate ¼” seam, that chocolate is an essential quilting tool, and that “practice makes improvement”.

Our July Featured Speaker

Trudy has been sewing since she was 12 years old and has progressively grown as a sewing enthusiast. Starting a LongArmer business meant she needed to find a way to document her journey. Taking photographs of her customers quilts seemed the logical step. Trying to perfect her photography of quilts led her to take digital classes at the community college. The first class “Digital Photography” opened up a new world and led to constantly improving on the technique of photographing quilts. She still maintains a LongArmer business and takes a photograph of eery customer quilt. She lectures and offers workshops on “How To Photograph Your Quilt”.
