I had the opportunity to take several awesome machine quilting classes while at Road to California. Two of the classes were taught using Gammill machines: a sit-down version with Karen McTavish, and a stand-up longarm class with Gina Perkes.
Both instructors were excellent and I would definitely take a class from them again!
However, both classes confirmed for me that I am most comfortable quilting on my domestic Bernina. Those stand up machines feel to me like I’m driving a tank (sorry Gina!) and while I prefer the sit-down machine, I can’t justify owning two. :-)
With all that said, I do think Gammill is an excellent company and they were very generous to give us a cute little swag bag with a huge spool of Glide thread and a pair of scissor snips. Since I took two classes, I have two of these cuties to give away (the bags, not the machines)!
For your chance to win one of the 2 swag bags, answer this question in the comments below: if you had your choice to attend any quilting event of your choice, what would it be? (And since there’s a big ol’ G embroidered on the front, maybe I’ll give preference for one of the winners to someone whose first or last name starts with a G…..)
My giveaway will run through next Wednesday, February 5th at noon. Sorry, folks, this one is just open to US winners (unless you are willing to pay expensive int’l shipping.)
Good luck – and just in case you missed it earlier in the week, click here for my recap of the show from a “modern” perspective.
