December 6, 2019 10:00am-4:00pm EST

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. Taught by Angela Huffman.  Register for this class by clicking here.
