                                                                                    Longarm Certification Class
                                                   Cost is $100.00   Class time is  5.25 hours , with a 15 minute break. 
In this class you will receive one on one training on the basics of longarm quilting. Our training is on the 20" HQ Amara machine or 24" HQ Forte on 12' table, whichever we have in stock at the time. Once you have successfully completed this certification you will then be able to rent hours on any of the machines we have in stock at the time.  Amara on a 12' table, 16" Simply on the 5' table, 15" Moxie on 8' table, or the 24" Forte on 12' table . This is all hand guided quilting (no access to the computerized portion).  Below is a list of what you'll be learning.
                              1- How to properly load your quilt top, backing, and batting
                              2- Basics of how to achieve good tension, thread the machine and oil it.
                              3- How to set a paper pantograph and quilt a few rows
                              4- How to advance the quilt and realign for the next row of the pantograph
                              5- Move to the front of the machine for an introduction into free motion quilting and ruler work.
                           I supply you with a quilt sandwich to work on and it is yours to keep when you're finished. You must call to schedule your certification at least 1 week in advance. Any cancellations within 48 hours or less will incur a $20.00 fee.
                           Once your training is scheduled you may then go to my website to order your class and confirm with payment. I strongly suggest that before you schedule your training that you have at least 2-3 quilt tops ready to be quilted so you can begin renting right away while the info is fresh in your memory. Fee's to rent will reduce in price once you have rented enough that you are efficient in completing a quilt with little to no assistance needed. 
                            A robotics class will be offered to anyone interested once you have rented enough to become totally self sufficient in operating the machines in hand guided mode. This will be determined by me ( Cheri Lewis) owner.
