Event description

Description

This class is designed for Handi Quilter longarm machine owners who had training when their machine was installed and are ready to go further or for those looking for a refresher of the basics.

Customers of Pinhole Quilting are entitled to one FREE Foundation training course when they purchase their machine. You will be sent a discount code that you can enter when you purchase your course so that the cost reduces to zero. If you purchased your machine from another dealer, purchased it second hand or in another country you are very welcome to join us. The course cost is £120.

Sitdown and standup longarm will be taught simultaneously on the same day as there are a number of techniques that are common to all Handi Quilter machines.

Student to machine ratio wil be a maximum of two students per machine for standup and one student per machine for sitdown. The sitdown machines will be a mix of Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen and Pfaff powerquilter 16.0. Many of the features of the two models are similar and where they are different this will be explained. The standup machines are a mix of Avante on demonstration Studio Frames and Simply Sixteens on Little Foot Frames. Many of the techniques taught apply to all machines. We will try to match you to the machine you purchased but on some occasions this will not be possible (or may be possible but only for part of the day).
