What to Look for in a Stationary (Sit-down) Longarm

Wednesday, August 3

Frustrated with cramming your quilt into the small throat of your domestic machine? Thinking about upsizing to a stationary/sit-down longarm? I've been quilting on these machines for more than a decade and I'm thrilled to introduce you to all the exciting, easy features of the HQ Capri by Handi Quilter.

Feel the Rhythm - Learn the Basic of Free-Motion Quilting

Wednesday, August 3

"You can't play in the orchestra, unless you show up for rehearsal. Before you attend the rehearsal, you need to practice regularly." This is my view for free-motion quilting. This class will start beginners off with simple movement exercises to strengthen your free-motion abilities. Once you learn the notes, you'll be ready for a symphony!
