    Yesterday I took my long arm quilting class.The machine was a Nolting Long Arm,what an amazing machine.
    The owner of the shop (www.institchesfabric.com) Denise was so easy to work w/and an excellant teacher !!

    Class began learning the basics of running the long arm machine,how to fill bobbins,threading the machine,loading a quilt,how to use the machine with free motion,pantographs or the computer system.
    I then decided which computer pattern I wanted stitched onto my quilt.

    Next it was hands on,pinning the zippers to layers,loading the quilt onto the machine & start quilting.
    Need I say,I was in ahhhhhhh & so excited.
    Of course there was more hands learning as the first two rows were completed, I then needed to do advance the quilt to continue quilting the next two rows.
    Seeing the pattern being stitched was amazing & so very rewarding.
    Once the entire quilt was finished,taken off the machine, I was able to hold up the quilt & see the end result,wow !!!!

    I would very much enjoy hearing your feedback & any suggestions you may have to offer.
    Thank you

    Very nice. I've heard many good things about Nolting machines. I plan to have a long arm in the future... will definitely check them out.

    I have a Nolting long arm and love it. The lady that gave my daughters and I our class writes for quilt magazines. She was really good and showed us lots of tips Her name was Beverly something can't remember last name. LA quilting is fun but can be somewhat stressful. Enjoy.
