You must take this two-part class to rent our HandiQuilter Amara. It is limited to four people per class, by pre-registration only. Payment is required at registration. You will need to bring a notebook and a pencil or pen. We supply the practice quilt tops, backings and batting. In the class you will learn how to load your quilt and the basics of using the machine, such as bringing up the thread from the bottom, starting and ending. We will cover basic free motion quilting such as all-over loops, swirls, meander, etc.
By the end of the class you will be able to quilt an all-over design on your own quilt. Once you’ve taken the basic Longarm Class, we invite you to rent our longarm machine by the hour and get those quilt tops made into quilts! The Amara rents for $50/first four hours, $10/hour for each additional hour. Machine rental is by appointment and the hours are somewhat flexible.
