Martha Downs began quilting 10 years ago. During her first quilt class, the instructor demonstrated free motion quilting on a regular home sewing machine. Martha was fascinated with the free motion quilting demonstration. After trying it on her sewing machine, she was hooked! It was so challenging and Martha was determined to conquer free motion quilting. Martha and her husband moved to Bismarck, ND during the winter of 2010. After moving, she was introduced to long arm quilting. Martha now owns a Gammill long arm quilting machine. The name of Martha’s long arm quilting business is Free Spirit Quilting. She works full time doing custom free motion long arm quilting for clients in her home.
