Long-arm Rental Certification Class - Beginner

The beginning Long Arm Classes are $110 per person and has room for only 4 people, in a hands-on, four hour class. Classes are on Saturdays, from 10:30 am – 3 pm. Payment is required at registration.

You will need to bring a blank, unlined sketchbook and a pencil. You also need to bring your lunch, or money for going out to eat, as we have lots of places nearby where you can grab and go. We supply the quilt tops, backings and batting.

In the class you will learn how to load your quilt and the basics of using the machine, such as bringing up the thread from the bottom, starting and ending. We will cover basic free motion quilting, such as all-over loops, swirls, loops and stars, etc. We will also cover using an all-over pantograph pattern— how to set it up and how to roll your quilt. You will use a laser light on the machine to follow the pantograph pattern.

By the end of class, you will be able to quilt an all-over design on your own quilt.

Once you’ve taken the basic Long Arm Class, we invite you to take the Advanced class (which will cover the ProStitcher) or rent a long arm machine by the hour, and get those quilt tops made into quilts! The machine rents for $20/hour. The fee includes thread and use of our edge-to-edge pantograph patterns. Machine rental is by appointment and the hours are flexible. We have lots of pantograph patterns you may use, and we are willing to order others if you find something you would like to quilt.

You will need to bring in your own tops and backs to quilt after you have taken the class. We do sell batting on the roll, by the yard, so you may purchase batting from us, or you may bring in your own.
