Domestic Machine Quilting with Linda Hungerford

  • Patch Reef Park Community Center 2000 Yamato Road Boca Raton, FL, 33431 United States (map)

Lecture and trunk show.

As a proponent of making one's own quilts from start to finish, Linda will share her journey toward becoming an award-winning domestic machine quilter. With first-hand experience facing the challenges of learning free motion quilting without the aid of a stitch regulator, she will share tips learned along the way that will help domestic machine quilters achieve success. The presentation concludes with a trunk show of domestic machine quilted quilts.

This lecture is free for SFMQG members as part of our regular general meeting.

Guests can attend the lecture for a $5 entrance fee, and are very welcome to stay for the rest of our meeting afterwards. Please book your place in advance as numbers are limited.

  • Doors open: 12:30
  • Lecture begins at 1pm promptly and concludes at 2pm.
  • We will have a short intermission and then our regular meeting afterwards.
Linda Hungerford has been a sewist since childhood, and a quilter since 1976. In 1998 she began domestic machine quilting, and in 2005 began teaching. Her first classes were taught to beginners at her church in Iowa, and expanded to churches throughout the Des Moines area. As a result of her classes, she wrote First Time Quiltmaking (Landauer Publishing).
Since moving to The Villages, Florida, in 2012, Linda has continued teaching beginner quiltmaking and has now taught the five-week series of lessons a total of 34 times! Through the Lifelong Learning College, and Quilting Guild of The Villages, she also teaches technique and free motion quilting classes. MQG members can register now for Linda’s “No Tails Binding: Mitered Corners by Machine” creative webinar on Thursday, September 29.
