New to longarm quilting and not sure where to start? This class will take the fear out of your machine. It’s easy to be overhelmed with the thought of buying a longarm, or of learning how to use your new, beautiful, and inspiring (but also terrifying and expensive) machine. If you’re scared to touch your machine, or just unsure where to start, join Kris for a hands-on introduction to longarming that will have you up and quilting in no time. Kris will take the fear out of using your machine, starting with the basics. She will teach you how to load the machine and the importance of a square backing. She’ll cover thread choices, batting, needle size, common tension issues and more. Kris’s stress-free approach will have you feeling confident and excited to start playing. Note: Two students will share a machine, so sign-up with a friend or make a new one in class when you join the fun! You’ll be surprised at how much you’ll learn between turns at the machine.
