Longarm 101

This class is up and running again at Quilting Mayhem! Please remember to wash your hands on entering the building and to wear a mask at all times. Please read the note below.

Want to rent the Handi Quilter Longarm but don't know how to use it? Come and take this class before you ever step up to the machine. Learn what leaders, pantographs, and free-motion are all about, plus get tips, tricks, and valuable "how-to" information. You will also operate the machine to get a feel for how it works. If free-motion is your thing, get the basics on how to choose a design and what it takes to get the results you want! ***This class is required prior to renting the machine. It is important to start renting the machine and quilting within three months of the class to retain what you learn. If you do not rent the machine for longer than 90 days you will need to take a refresher class to brush up on how to use the rental.***

The price includes Longarm 101 (a three-hour, hands-on class), up to six hours (one day) of Handi Quilter rental (must be completed within 30 days), and the starter kit* of supplies you will need to use the machine. This is a great deal and you are saving money over purchasing everything separately.

*The starter kit includes a bobbin case, three bobbins, a package of needles, and the special pins needed to load your quilt on the Handi Quilter (HQ) machine. You will also receive 15% off the purchase of other recommended supplies (see supply list) if you purchase any of them within the first thirty days of attending class.
