This hands on class will focus on how to use circle machine quilting rulers on a longarm quilting machine. The circle ruler is very versatile and we will focus on the many different ways it can be used. We will tackle custom quilting techniques, border designs with corners and a few block designs. This class is designed for our rental customers who would like to explore guided custom quilting and for those who own their own longarm quilter and are looking to grow their skills. You’ll share a machine with a sewing partner in this class- limit 2 per machine. A hands on class is the best way to learn these valuable skills. This class is taught by Angela Huffman.

This course is free to those who purchase an APQS machine, but it is also open to those who own a different brand machine. It is designed to help those who own their own stand-up quilting machine regardless of the brand. This is a comprehensive class that covers multiple ways to load a quilt on a frame, how to set tension, how to use pantographs & line them up, basic machine maintenance (APQS specific), and how to choose threads and batting. We will also touch on basic custom quilting. It is mainly lecture/demo so be sure to bring something to write with and a list of any questions you may have. This class covers much, much more than our rental certification course. However, taking this course will also certify you to rent our longarm machines by the hour in the future.

Step into the fantastic world of machine quilting using your sit down, domestic sewing machine. In this class we will use a pre-printed panel as our quilting sandbox to play with motifs. No piecing needed! Angela Huffman will show you how to use both straight line quilting and free motion quilting to learn the basics of machine quilting on a regular sewing machine or sit down longarm. Angela will share tips on how to prep your quilting project for quilting, selecting threads, fun beginner stitching designs and more.
Prior quilting experience is not needed but you do need to know how to thread your machine and set it up for free motion quilting. If you have a table that fits onto your machine to make freemotion quilting easier, bring it!
All of these classes and events will be offered at the Quilted Joy Studios in Louisville, Ky.
