I will be teaching the APQS Beginning Longarm Quilting Class the last weekend of January in Louisville, Ky. Pick from either Saturday, January 30 from 10-4pm or Sunday, January 31. This class is free for new APQS machine owners. All others are $150 for the day. Please know that while there will be APQS specific information in the class, most of the class will go over techniques that will work on any brand machine. 

I have limited the class to only 4-5 students per session so contact me right away if you want to reserve your spot as I have only a handful of spots left. Again, this is a one day class from 10-4pm in my home studio. 

If these dates don’t work for you but you’d still like to take the class, please contact me so I can reserve a spot for you in a future class. 


With the beginner class offered from APQS and Quilted Joy, 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
–          Pantographs
–          Borders
–          Stitching a block
–          Marking quilt designs
–          Ruler work

  1. Just got that quilt bound this weekend!!! Boy am I behind!
    Thanks for the advice on the long arm quilter. I thought of you right away when I was debating about getting one. The fact that I can get classes with it is a big plus. I'll give you a call soon… I guess we are all "snowed" in for the weekend anyway 🙂
