This class is for anyone new to longarm quilting or struggling to keep their quilts square. We will work on mounting, easing in fullness, basting how and when it is necessary. Keeping your quilt square as we move down the quilt. Avoiding frowns and smiles on the bottom border, wavy borders etc.

This class is devoted entirely to tension. How is a stitch formed, how and when do you adjust bobbin tension? What are the variables in achieving the elusive perfect tension?
What about specialty threads? We will work through all the variables and learn some great tricks and tips.

Are you curious about longarm quilting, or longarms in general? 
In this one on one class I will introduce you to the world of Longarm Quilting.
Bring along a baby quilt or small quilt no larger than 50" x 50". Learn the basics of using a stitch regulated longarm. Using a few simple designs you will go home with a completed quilt top. As this is a practice piece please don't bring a precious quilt top.
