brush up your longarm skills? This class demystifies longarm quilting by teaching all the basics!
We’ll start with machine and frame features and maintenance, then demonstrate loading a quilt. We’ll move on to picking the perfect thread for your project, setting your tension, and choosing designs for your quilt. This class is full of great tips and tricks while exhibiting all the great features found in the HandiQuilter machine lineup.
Looking for the perfect circle or wave? Or how about a heart or arc? These shapes are all possible with consistency and precision when you use a ruler or template. Learn the safe way to use these tools, starting with the right foot. We’ll explore designs like waves with channels, curved crosshatching, and echoing around applique. Rulers will become your new favorite quilting design tool.
Tired of doing edge to edge? Have you ever wanted to layout a design for your whole quilt? It’s easy to plan with a few simple steps.

learn how to accomplish the quilting quickly and easily. Classic fillers and modern designs will all be explored.
