Have you purchased a longarm, known to many as a beautiful, glistening, highly functional, and very expensive machine? And is that magnificent device gradually losing its luster and gathering a small layer of dust because you’re gripped with fear at the idea of activating the On button? Or is the longarm on your wishlist, but the thought of investing in something so complicated and enormous seems unrealistic? Stop, stop, stop! Lisa has heard it all before, and these thoughts are simply unnecessary. Lisa’s Longarm Meet and Greet allows her to take the uncertainty out of connecting with the amazing longarm machine. She will teach you how to load the top and the importance of square backing. Then, learn some simple allover designs, simple custom designs, and many other important topics. With her humor and creativity in the classroom, Lisa will close the gap that prevents you from uniting with the longarm. By the conclusion of this class, any skepticism about whether you possess the ability to take command of this machine will be long gone. On the contrary, after this class one of two things will happen: you and your longarm will become the best of friends, or the longarm will no longer appear on your wishlist and will instead appear in your quilting room.

Each student will work on their own machine; there’s no sharing required.
