CLASS DESCRIPTION:

In the painted cow class, you will learn the freedom of raw edge applique design and the impact “thread painting” can give to an image on a quilt. Considered primarily as an art quilting form, this class is designed for those who have quilted in the past, meaning you understand your machine and the fundamentals of free motion quilting. It doesn’t mean you need to “feel” like you are perfect or even good at it, it just means you need to understand how it works and have done it some. If you can stipple or use a walking foot for quilting, you should be fine. She really is pretty easy to make.

Taught by Mitzie Schafer, owner and designer for Jittery Wings Quilt Co. In her previous medium of pottery/clay, she taught retreats across the south east and classes for the City of Columbia, Parks and Recreation Center. Now as a quilter/sewist, she is excited to be teaching again – which she loves! You can see her work at www.jitterywings.com or on Facebook at Jittery Wings or on Instagram at @jitterywings.
