Wendy Sheppard never intended to be a quilter. She only started quilting because a friend (who had been quilting for 30 years) encouraged Wendy to try it. Once Wendy experienced the thrill of incorporating multiple fabrics in a quilt, quilting just drew her in.  Wendy remembers, “As they say, the rest [is] history after my first quilt.” Wendy Sheppard Domestic Machine Quilting Today, she enjoys all aspects of the quilting process. Her quilting space is a main-level office in her home located in northern Virginia, about 45 minutes from Mount Vernon, the estate of George Washington. Maybe that’s why if Wendy Sheppard isn’t quilting, she is pursuing her interest in Early American History. What quilter has had an impact on Wendy and her quilting journey? “I always admire Diane Gaudynski.  She is my hero!  She inspires me to strive for more than adequate, but rather strive to be excellent in constructing and quilting my quilts.” Wendy Sheppard has been teaching quilting classes on and off for about 9 years. She first taught at a local sewing center.  She stopped when her daughter was really young.  During those years, Wendy filmed online/video classes for Annie’s on domestic machine quilting. What does Wendy like most about teaching quilt classes? “…The smiles on the faces when my students realize they CAN accomplish certain skill sets taught in class.” She hopes her students at Road “will gain confidence in the techniques I will be teaching in my classes.  I also hope that my students will make friends with the fellow attendees while we are working on projects in class.” Sewing machines will be provided for all of Wendy’s classes. Husqvarna-Viking machines will be available for students in her Monday/Tuesday class. The rest of Wendy’s classes will feature half BERNINA Q20 sit down longarm machines and half BERNINA domestic machines. Students will split their time working on both machines. Join Wendy to learn expert free motion quilting techniques while trying out quality Bernina sewing machines.]]>
