Quilted Joy’s next sessions of the APQS Beginning Longarm Class and the Introduction to Custom Quilting Class are on February 12 and February 13 respectively. Normally these classes would be taught in the Louisville, KY showroom, but due to COVID we’ll be offering these classes online. The classes will be live and taught via a private Zoom video conference room.
Students will be able to enjoy class from the comfort of their own home. One of our fabulous quilt fairies will be monitoring a chat room to answer all your questions. And Angela will pause throughout class to answer those questions as well. We’ll also record the class, so if you need to rewatch later you’ll have access to that recording for a limited time after class.
Live, Virtual APQS Beginning Longarm Class, February 12, 2020, 10am-4pm Eastern, $200 or Free for new APQS owners
This class is for brand new longarm machine owners of any brand. It 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. It is mainly lecture/demo so be sure to have something to write with and a list of any questions you may have. It is free for those who have purchased an APQS new or factory certified used machine in the last year (contact us to register if you fall into that category). It is designed to help those who own their own stand up quilting machine- regardless of the brand.
