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),  how to choose threads, batting. It is mainly lecture/demo so be sure to bring 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 (contact Angela to register if you fall into that category (502) 718-7148).   It is designed to help those who own their own stand up quilting machine- regardless of the brand.  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.

We will take a lunch break during class (usually around noon). We have a refrigerator and microwave here in the shop and you are welcome to bring a sack lunch, snacks, and drinks.

    Beginning Longarm quilting This class was so inspiring and educational. I had my longarm about 4 weeks before taking the class. I had practiced a little but was a little afraid of my Lenni. Angela covered so much material and validated my fear of not achieving perfect freemotion quilting immediately. I now feel comfortable to risk making a mistake. And, the tension presentation was amazing. I highly recommend this class to all beginners. Kathy Wantland
