Claudia Pfeil comes from the historic textiles manufacturing town of Krefeld, Germany. She took her first quilt class in 1985 after seeing quilts at a CREATIVA Show. Alex and Ricky chat with her as they look at her quilts. Next up, Claudia works with silk and tells us that we shouldn't be afraid to use this lovely fabric in our quilts. She demonstrates improv block building with both squares and curves. Then she gives Ricky tips for free-motion quilting using her five "quilting letters." Claudia also gives tips for "Top Shelf" work and working with Razzle Dazzle thread in the longarm.
Wrapping up the show is Gayle Schliemann from BERNINA. Gayle loves Cosplay and teaches us how to make Cat ears as a quick costume accessory with the help of the BERNINA embroidery feature and button feature. We also get to take a look at some of the costumes Gayle has created over the years, each with special quilting and sewing designs.
