Jean Impey Quilt Classes ‐ [email protected] ‐ JEAN IMPEY, TEACHER/SPEAKER I offer a wide variety of classes as well as a unique style of teaching. I offer many different types of classes and can work with all levels of quilting and confidence. Some student favorite classes include classes where I teach quilters how to draw on fabric with markers. Another favorite is anything with Free‐motion quilting. If you have never free motioned before, the Garden Party is a perfect class. Most of my classes, you will complete your project within one day. Also, I encourage quilters to try the technique/class first and make a 20" pillow to see if they like it enough to move on and make the quilt. The Spider Web class is a perfect example of this.
