Longarm Certification Class

January 11 @ 11:30 am - 4:30 pm | $150

We offer a longarm rental program where you will be able to rent time on our 18″ AQPS Lenni longarm quilting machine to quilt your own quilts.

Before you can reserve rental time on Lenni, you will have to take a class to be certified to use the longarm. In this class, you will learn everything you need to know to quilt on a longarm machine. You’ll be introduced to all the parts of the longarm, learn how to load your quilt onto the machine, how to generally handle the machine (threading, working with a pantograph, working freehand), and essentials about prepping your quilt top, backing, and batting.

The class will be taught on a practice quilt provided by Gotham Quilts, and includes your first 2 hours of rental time (a $100 value). You’re welcome to bring a finished top with you to talk through ideas for quilting it, and after class you can schedule your first 2-hour rental slot to work on it.

The class is limited to 2 students who will be sharing Lenni during class.

Required supplies to bring with you:
– Pen/paper for notes
