Free Motion Sewing

Today I'm taking a class at Olde World Quilt Shoppe on free motion sewing.  I have tried learning this on my own.  I know the basics such as how to set up my sewing machine, the basic way free motion sewing is done but I haven't learned how to control myself or the machine for more than 30 seconds.  If you ever tried this you know what I mean.  It's not easy.  I even made an appointment with a lady who knows machines!  She is the person who sold me my machine to see if I was doing something wrong.  She spent a couple of hours with me and in the end she said I was doing everything right.  My machine was working right, I set it up correctly for free motion sewing, tension was good and I understood how to do it.  All I needed to do now was practice!  Well, I agree!  I need to practice but I also think there's more.  I believe that how you control your speed is important and how you move your fabric is important.  I heard rumor that the teacher teaching this class is one of the best in our area!  I'm excited!  The owner told me I will leave the class being able to do free motion sewing.  I'll let you know how it went.
