Handi Quilter Quilt Retreat - Ruler Work

Join us for a HandiQuilter event - with a twist! 

This class is designed for quilters who have never long arm quilted before or are newbies interested in learning how to finish their quilts on the long arm.

Day 1, Basics of Long Arm Quilting, is a full day class that will focus on the basics of long arm quilting. Take the mystery out of topics such as thread, needles, tension and how to properly and effectively load a quilt onto a long arm frame. HandiQuilter longarm machine and frame systems come in various sizes for every budget and are user-friendly because they are designed by a quilter, for quilters – just like you!

Day 2 features two half-day sessions.

  • Session 1, Free Motion Foundations, will focus on free motion quilting techniques. Create flowing designs by connecting simple design elements with continuous lines, traveling across the quilt or filling in a specific area. Learn how drawing and muscle memory contribute to beautiful free-motion quilting, and how you can create stunning designs.
  • Session 2, Ruler Work, will focus on ruler work. If you love precision and consistency in your quilting designs, you will love using rulers and templates! These handy tools assist in placing designs accurately and stitching them out precisely. Learn to handle rulers and templates safely with the ruler base and Sure Foot, and how to achieve accuracy with the markings. The wide variety of HandiQuilter rulers will inspire you to new design heights
Day 3, Exploring Pro-Stitcher, is a full day class that features the amazing Pro-Stitcher robotics program. Pro-Stitcher is an intuitive computer-guided quilting system designed especially for use with HandiQuilter longarm quilting machines. User-friendly and simple to operate, the step-by-step process for each function is easy and fun. Whether finishing your own quilts or consider a quilting business, come see the elegant and precise quilting you can accomplish with Pro-Stitcher. New users – start here!
