After years of longarm quilting, Sue has developed a few skills that she would like to share with beginners. Everyone will get their own longarm to work with for the whole day, so get ready for a fun-filled day of hands-on learning! This class begins by covering the basics: Sue will teach you about mounting and floating, squaring off a quilt so that it is square every time, and choosing the perfect thread, needles, and batting. Then, you will learn how to master free-motion quilting so that no matter what the project is, you’ll be saying, “No problem; I can quilt that!” You’ll learn about tension, texture, and balance while getting a full day’s experience on a longarm machine – no sharing required!
