  1. THIS IS GONNA BE AWESOME!! Can't wait!

  2. I was wondering how many machines you have?? Are they long arm machines? Or is it our home machines?? Please...��

    1. Hi Jan -- thank you so much for writing. The 202 FMQ Retreats are geared toward domestic machine quilting but many of the motif, tips, and tricks do apply to longarm use. There are no longarms machines planned for our 2020 Retreat dates but you never know what 2021 will bring. Feel free to email fmqretreats@gmail.com with additional questions. Thank you for writing. Hope to see you in June!
