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.
