Reserve Your Spot for Beginning Longarm Quilting Class

Posted on

I will be teaching the APQS Beginning Longarm Quilting Class designed by Dawn Cavanaugh who is the national education director for American Professional Quilting System!

This 5-6 hour class is perfect for all beginning longarm quilters who use machines by any manufacturer, not just APQS. The class size is VERY limited and will be taught in my home studio in Louisville, Ky. All new APQS machine customers are entitled to take this class at no cost.

Sunday, January 31, 2010
11am-5pmHere are the specifics:

With the beginner class offered at APQS, our goal is to teach you Fons & Porter with Brandiethe skills you’ll need to accomplish a typical quilting project on your new longarm machine. This class is designed to be an introduction to machine quilting after you have made yourself familiar with your machine controls.  Whether you intend to start a business or just want to get your quilts done faster, you’ll learn valuable techniques to accomplish your projects creatively and efficiently. This class is mostly “demonstration” so we can squeeze in as much information as possible. 
 
We will cover specific topics during each class, however, each class is unique and based on the needs of the students. We encourage questions and active participation — you’re here to learn!

Bring all your questions about operating the machine, business practices, thread, tension and anything else you can think of.  This is a demonstration/lecture class.  No hands on time will be available.  Information we will cover includes:
 
–          Starting a business
–          Thread, tension, batting
–          Deciding how to quilt a quilt
–          Dealing with problem quilts
–          Different methods for loading quilts
