Love the Show Jodie .  Kim makes it look easy.  Will pratice on paper first.  Will you also show how to load a quilt ?  How tide is the quilt on the frame ?  How much room is there between the machine plate and quilt ?

I LOVE this show! It's so informative with great ideas I can't wait to try. Kim makes it look so easy. Hopefully, with practice I can overcome my fear of feathers. Look forward to coming episodes!
