Quiltside Tools Class with Gina Perkes-Tidwell



Gina Perkes-Tidwell is an international award-winning quilter and quilting educator. She spends much of her time in the classroom, sharing tips and techniques with the most wonderful people in the world: quilters! Gina, a lover of all things creative, has an innate need to beautify things and feels completely blessed to have been born as an “artoholic.” Her life is filled with color, fun, ideas, texture, challenges, bling, threads, glitter, sugar, flour, and of course, CHAOS. Though she enjoys all sorts of creative outlets and mediums (gardening, mosaic, oil painting, etc.), her three favorites are quilting, culinary arts, and photography. Gina travels all over this beautiful country, sharing her techniques with others, and hosts private quilting and pastry retreats at her home in Arizona. 

Join Gina as she shares her favorite quilting tools in this hands on class! You will discover how to use stencils to quickly mark designs onto your quilting space, then how to plan stitching paths to reduce or eliminate backtracking by adding secondary designs in your quilting. You will also learn new techniques for using a variety of ruler styles. Discover how to outline appliqué shapes with precision using specialty guides. You will learn a variety of methods for marking designs onto your quilt top with no fear, as well as how to consider threads and to setup your machine for success with quilting using specialty threads! Two to three students per longarm quilting machine. While this class is taught on our Innova longarm quilting machines all the tools and techniques can be applied to quilting on your domestic machine as well.
