Dara Tomasson - Stitched Quilting Company
So happy to be celebrating Canadian quilters. I love to honour the great quilting tradition and am continually building the quilting community. One of the greatest parts of quilting for me is the free motion quilting. I often describe what I do is to doodle on quilts with thread.
I have been honoured to quilt for so many incredibly talented quilters locally and afar.
I also have the opportunity to teach free motion quilting on domestic and long arm quilting machines here in Canada and Internationally. I worked as an elementary school teacher for almost a decade and the love for teaching has expanded to quilters.
I actually became a long arm quilter for hire by accident! How is that possible? I taught 2 classes at my local quilt shop and when the students finished piecing their tops, they asked me to quilt their tops. I literally quilted their tops on my domestic machine at my kitchen table. Eventually I grew tired of spray baste and got a long arm and haven’t looked back.
You can expect a free motion quilting book to come out in April 2020.
Another way that I contribute my talents in the quilting world is through my business and life coaching. I help fellow long arm quilters build their business through a course and then weekly coaching calls. There are so many amazing ways to live creatively.
I love to serve. If you have quilt tops that need quilting send them my way.
If you need a skilled free motion quilter instructor, I am available for retreats and workshops.
If you want help with a creative business or want to up level your life with life coaching, I am here to support you.
One of my greatest pieces advice for your is to take courage and act. Your future self will thank-you for sticking to learning and growing. I could not do this level of free motion quilting 5 years ago.
If you mention that you found me through Stacie's blog I will offer free batting on any of the quilts you send to me. I would love to get to know you, hop over to my Instagram or Facebook and introduce yourself- that would be awesome.
