Say What?!   We are adding a Saturday Class in August!

We couldn't get enough of Jenny's incredible talent, so we have added a second class:

 Fearless Feathers Four Ways


The Quilt Skipper is coming to Bakersfield! Jenny is a fiber artist, author and teacher from northern California. Her work focuses on free motion quilting on whole cloth and has been juried into the Houston Int’l Quilt Festival, AQS in Paducah, Pacific International Quilt Festival, the Curitiba Quilt Show (Brazil) and numerous juried art shows. She enjoys traveling to teach and lecture on free motion quilting at major shows as well as guilds and shops across the country. She has appeared on Quilting Arts TV as well as The Quilt Show. She is passionate about free motion quilting and authored a book, Free Motion Quilting, Ordinary to Extraordinary. She loves to inspire her students to free motion quilt their own quilts!
