Let’s face it- we are not all comfortable with our artistic abilities, but there are ways to be more successful in your longarm and art quilting. This class will be great for anyone with a basic understanding of how to use a longarm quilting machine- we will NOT be spending time on the basics. 

In this class we will learn to: 

  • Learn to mark and use stencils 
  • Make an original Edge to Edge (E2E) stencil 
  • Mark a quilt to assist free-motion quilting (FMQ) 
  • Discuss various marking options 
  • Use a stencil to mark an owl and make decisions about how to fill the spaces 

At the end of class each student will be able to take their quilt sandwich home as a reminder of the skills learned. They will also be able to take home the stencils they make and use during class. All materials needed in class will be provided. Students may wish to bring a notebook and writing utensil. 

Kaye Collins

Kaye Collins loves to create and teach. Although Kaye made her first quilt in 1989, it wasn’t until 2017, when she learned she was going to be a grandmother, that she began her quilting journey. As a student of “YouTube University”, Kaye learned to quilt from some of the greatest teachers in the world and immediately started designing and sewing her own quilt patterns. She purchased a HQ Forte® with Pro-Stitcher® and has never looked back. Once Kaye finds something she enjoys, she can’t help but share it. With a master’s degree in education and twenty years of teaching in high school, she has a toolbox full of skills to provide clear and concise explanations and demonstrations. Helping people develop sewing and quilting skills brings her joy. Kaye teaches in person, virtually, and through her website, OhKayeQuilting.com. Kaye resides in Lehi, Utah with her supportive and enabling husband and two Irish Water Spaniels. She enjoys traveling the country in a motor home, with frequent stops at fabric stores and spending as much time in Maine as possible. She is the mother of three adult sons and has three wonderful grandchildren.
