Sewing Class Navigation
Join us for this fun, hands on Longarm quilting experience. You will learn many techniques in three different classes over the course of two days with educators from Handi Quilter.
Lunch, snacks, machines, fabric and informational take-home packets will all be provided.
Here is a sneak peek into what you will learn:
- STAND-UP LONGARM MACHINE QUILTING BASICS
Does longarm quilting interest you, and you’d like to learn more about it? Or do you just want a
review of longarm basics? This class removes the mystery of longarm quilting by explaining
machine and frame elements and features, how to load a quilt, and vital facts about thread,
needles and tension. Handi Quilter longarm and frame systems come in various sizes for every budget and are user- friendly because they are designed by a quilter, for quilters – just like you!
- RULER ESSENTIALS
If you love precision and consistency in your quilting designs, you will love using design rulers and templates! These handy tools assist in placing designs accurately and stitching them out precisely. Learn to handle rulers and templates safely with the ruler base and Sure Foot, and how to achieve accuracy with the markings. The wide variety of Handi Quilter rulers will inspire you to new design heights.
- CREATIVE TEXTURES AND FILLS
Meandering is the easiest and most common filler for background space – but there are countless other creative design elements to use instead. Come expand your design portfolio by learning the stitch path of a wide variety of creative filler designs. Learn which designs lend themselves best to micro-quilting, and how to use Micro Handles for best results.
