Free Motion Quilting on a Necchi Supernova Julia

I got the sweetest message from a reader yesterday asking if you can free motion quilt on a Necchi Supernova Julia.  The quick answer is YES!!!  The long answer is, yes you can quilt on the Julia but you need a hopping foot and you need to practice.  There's just no way to convey what needs be with pictures and words so I made a video.

  1. Hello Melissa,
    Great video! Yes, I've got pink gloves too, which were sold as very cheap gardening gloves.
    Thank you for linking up with Free Motion Mavericks. I am putting a link to your video up this week.
    Love, Muv
