Eric introduced you to the basics in “Fearless Free-Motion: Stitching for Beginners”. It was an incredible success and we thank you. He covers some of the basics again in this course, along with more in-depth techniques to conquer those free-motion fears and provides the best tips to master this skill.
WHAT YOU GET
• Lessons on free-motion preparation, including machine set-up
• Refresher of all the different weights and types of threads to use for quilting or free-motion embellishment
• Information on the proper tools for the job, including needles, SO important to success
• Instructions for a beautiful completed Ash Tree Wallhanging
In addition to all the fabulous free-motion techniques, included are instructions for a beautiful completed Ash Tree Wallhanging from the Frond Fabric Collection (and there is a kit available for purchase if you want at www.sulky.com). You’ll be reminded how to make a quilt sandwich and finish and bind the quilt with the Sulky Magical Quilt Binding technique, too. (A separate bonus video included.)
REMEMBER…you get to download and keep the instructions and videos forever! So there really is no timetable to this workshop once you do that. You work at your own pace and Sulky will help you with any questions you might have.

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR
With over 33 years in the sewing industry, Eric Drexler has developed a wide spectrum of expertise. As a senior in High School in 1983, Eric started working in Joyce and Fred Drexler's Sewing Center as their sewing machine mechanic. Over the next 15 years, he went on to become a Teacher, Manager and Co-owner until the business was sold in 1998. For the last 13 years, he has been a full-time employee of Sulky of America during which time he has become more heavily focused on his creative side, while continuing to indulge his passion for sewing machine repair in the evenings and on weekends.
Free-motion artistry has been Eric's other life-long passion ever since he was inspired by Joyce (co-founder of Sulky) when, at age 10, she first taught him the technique. He has made numerous large and small works of machine art, some of which have been featured in Sulky Books and at Trade and Consumer Shows all over the country.
