Trailer


Jamie Wallen loves to play.  His playground is his studio:  he draws pictures with his longarm machine; he paints with threads; and he uses a grid as his field when creating a new design.  When Jamie was a child, his mother took in mending, and he often fell asleep to the sound of the sewing machine.  As an adult, he left a highly stressful nursing career after seeing an ad in a quilting magazine, and he took to longarm quilting as easily as picking up a pencil.  Jamie shares how he strives to make threadwork look like a photograph, blending multiple shades of threads to create one color.  He offers ideas about printing your own fabrics, as well as creating quilt designs both simple and complex by utilizing a grid and starting with basic shapes.  To open the show, Alex demos a fun and fast quilted mini basket using just two squares of fabric and a piece of fusible batting.

i LOVE the way Jamie teaches. It would be a privilege to take a class with him. Maybe, the Southern Cal guilds can get together and invite him to a few speaking engagements. Hmmm...

Thanks Ricky and Alex for bringing us so much talent!!
