Longarm Certification Class
Cost is $70.00 for a four hour class
In this class you will receive one on one training on the basics of longarm quilting. Our training is on the 20" Handi Quilter Amara machine. Once you have successfully completed this certification you will then be able to rent hours on either the Amara on a 12' table or the Simply on the 5' little foot 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.
