Even after all the years we've been stitching, if we haven't free motion quilted for a while we still do this as our warm-up exercise. It also is a great way to check that your machine is running smoothly and that there are no tension issues.
You may be puzzled by the blog title, but throughout the first day we find students have a tendency to hold their breath as they sew, so we like to remind them: pop your tongue in and....breathe!
If you would like to learn how to free motion quilt or to improve your technique why not subscribe to our newsletter as we'll shortly be releasing the dates of our next courses?
