    Handi-Quilter Rental Class
    Jun 24 @ 10:30 am – 3:30 pm

    Do you want to quilt your own quilts on a long-arm machine? Don’t have the room? Take our Handi-Quilter rental class and then you can come and quilt your quilts on our big machine. The class is $110 and runs from 10:30-3:30, practice quilts, batting and thread are supplied, just bring a notebook and pencil.

    Classes can be booked at your convenience with adequate notice.

    The Long Arm Rental Classes are $110 per person and have only two people on each machine, in a handson, five-hour class. Classes are from 10:30 am – 3:30 pm the day of the week varies, but if you have a date in mind you can call and book ahead. Payment is required at registration.

    You will need to bring a blank, unlined sketchbook and a pencil. You also need to bring your lunch, or lunch money, we do have a fridge and microwave available. We supply the quilt tops, backings and batting.

    In the class you will learn how to load your quilt and the basics of using the machine, such as bringing up the thread from the bottom, starting and ending. We will cover basic free motion quilting such as allover loops, swirls, loops and stars, etc. We will also cover using an allover pantograph pattern— how to set it up and how to roll your quilt. You will use a laser light on the machine to follow the pantograph pattern.

    By the end of class you will be able to quilt an allover design on your own quilt.

    Once you’ve taken the basic Long Arm Class, we invite you to rent a long arm machine by the hour and get those quilt tops made into quilts! The machines rent for $20/hour. Machine rental is by appointment and the hours are flexible. We have lots of pantograph patterns available to purchase and we are willing to order others if you find something you would like to quilt.

    You will need to bring in your own tops and backs to quilt after you have taken the class. We do sell batting, so you may purchase batting from us, or you may bring in your own.
