The Caribbean Awaits! Join us as we cruise to the Western Caribbean in search of Fun in the Sun! This will be a week filled with new friends, quilting days and nights, beautiful sunsets, and memories.
About the Educator:
Jane Hauprich is a self-taught long arm quilter that specializes in custom free-motion quilting. Her quilts have won ribbons from the local level to the national level. She teaches nationally and internationally. Her philosophy is that no matter what type of machine you are using (domestic, short-arm, long-arm), that anyone should be able to custom quilt. Her goal in teaching is to equip each student with as much information and knowledge as possible, so that they can approach their quilts fully prepared and ready to custom-quilt their own quilts. Completing an entire quilt gives such a sense of accomplishment! She makes her classes fun and informative.

It’s time to start custom-quilting your own quilt tops! Come and learn tips, tricks and techniques to get your quilt tops quilted. You will begin by creating one or more projects, which you will then practice free motion quilting on domestic machines. This will be a great class for anyone at any skill level! Come and join the fun and leave with not only finished projects and knowledge of free-motion quilting, but also a feeling of accomplishment and success.
