Learning the basics of your longarm machine is crucial to the enjoyment and success of your longarming journey.  This four day event is held about once a month at Quilts on the Corner, with each quilter on their own dedicated machine.  Class size is small so that each student receives the individual attention necessary to learn all they need to know to quilt with confidence.  Classes are taught by Renae Haddadin, national quilt instructor.  Renae started quilting for hire in 2002.  She understands quilting for hire, every day use type quilting and quilting for show. Since that time she has taught thousands of longarmers to quilt, traveled nationally and internationally to teach, and won numerous top quilting awards, including Best of Show in Paducah, KY two times.  Her methods have been proven time and again to produce both beautiful and well crafted quilts.

Check the calendar for upcoming classes and check back often as we are always adding more classes. Classes do book out months in advance, so if you don't see a class you are looking for just send us a messageFour day Autopilot training is $800 per person.  



DAY 1:  The first day we will cover basic longarm skills.  Students will learn to load a quilt on the frame, set up an Edge to Edge design quilt, learn to start and stop stitching while quilting. You will learn to adjust stitches and how the stitch control panel functions. We also cover some good business practices, workflow and techniques for dealing with wavy quilts etc. You will do this on your computer and begin learning how to interact with the MACH3 interface.
 
DAY 2:  On day two, students will learn the individual Autopilot tools and how they work. We will use those tools to quilt various blocks on another lap sized quilt. We will discuss machine maintenance and learn to change the hopping foot.     
 
DAY 3:  On the third day, students will use a multi-colored striped quilt and use various threads. The focus will be on learning to balance tension with any thread combination. Students will use many thread types and colors to create a sample that will serve to remind them how various thread combinations look. By the end of the day you will feel comfortable threading the machine, winding a bobbin and making machine adjustments to achieve a beautiful stitch.  Students have the option to use it freehand or computer driven.   

DAY 4: With the purchase of AutoPilot Mach3, we include fourth day of training to ensure you get started on the best foot possible. We will work through designing custom borders on a custom quilt top, stitch in the ditch and using other tools for custom design. We will continue to use many of the tools you learned on day 1, 2 and 3 and any of the computerized tools that weren’t used previously. Each student will have their own project and get a full day of hands on practice.
