APQS Longarm Rental Certification – Upper Michigan
July 14 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm EDT
An event every month that begins at 10:30 am on day Second of the month, repeating until December 8, 2020
Come to Time Flies Quilt and Sew’s quilting studio and quilt your own quilts! This class will certify you to use our machines.
In this class you will learn how to operate and care for our APQS longarm quilting machines. We have three stand up machines: Lenni, Lucey & Mille 30.
For practice, you will need to bring a yard and half top fabric (preferably solid so you can see your stitches), and the same size backing and some batting. We sell fabric, so it’s not a problem if you don’t have anything suitable. On this “quilt sandwich” you will practice some beginning free motion designs. We will go over how to care for and use the machine.
Bring a lunch, we’ll take a break.
In the afternoon you will load your own baby or throw size quilt (max size 50″ x 50″) and quilt it. You will be offered a special rate for future longarming in our studio once you complete certification. It’s best you come in within a few weeks to quilt your next quilt before you forget all that you learned.
