Longarm Rental Quilting Class Cost: $40.00
This 2 hour class is a beginner hands-on, class taught on our Innova Longarm stitch-regulated machine. You will learn how to prepare your top, batting and backing, load your quilt, and the basics of using the machine. We will also cover using basic free-style movements and how to quilt an overall pattern using a pantograph: how to set them up on the machine, rolling the quilt using the pattern and following the pattern. By the end of the class you will be able to quilt an overall design on your quilt. Keep in mind that this first quilt will not be without flaws ;). But learning to longarm will be fun!
