Marge Tucker Machine Quilting Workshops


The NHMQG is very excited to be able to offer its members a FREE WORKSHOP! On Saturday, August 28th or Sunday, August 29th, please join other members for a fact filled, hands on workshop on MODERN QUILTING WITH YOUR WALKING FOOT by award-winning quilter, MARGE TUCKER.


Marge is an international award-winning quilt artist.  The first quilt she made, over twenty-five years ago, was for friends expecting their first child. Marge received “Best Machine Quilting” at QuiltCon 2019 as well as “Best Sewing Machine Workmanship Award – Modern” at the Pacific International Quilt Festival in 2019 as well as numerous other awards for her quilts.

The workshop includes a presentation of some of Marge's amazing work, instructions and demo of her techniques, time to try those techniques on your own machine, and the sharing of your work - and the work of other attendees.


When: Saturday, August 28th, 2021 OR Sunday, August 29th, 2021

Time: 10:00am - 2:30pm (1/2 hour break for lunch)

Where: The workshop is a zoom presentation. You should plan to have a good working space with your sewing machine set up for the class. Instructions on machine set-up will be sent out prior to the workshop.

Who: This workshop is for members of the NH Modern Quilt Guild, and is being offered free of charge!

To sign up, click on the link HERE. Please sign up for EITHER the Saturday workshop or the Sunday workshop. Because Marge interacts quite a bit with workshop attendees, "space" is limited on each day.

Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to learn from one of the best! Even if you never plan to quilt an entire quilt using your domestic machine, this class also provides you with great skills for finishing off small pieces or adding flair to accessories such as bags, totes, and more.
