American Quilter’s Society is taking longarm classes in a different direction starting with AQS QuiltWeek events in Chattanooga and Des Moines. Two classroom types are being offered in each location. One will be the traditional hands-on class and the other will be a lecture/demo style.
Hands-on classes allow you to practice what you are learning in class on the Handi Quilter Avanté longarm machine that is provided for each two-students to share. Stitching while in class allows the teacher to help you with suggestions and ideas to help perfect your quilting style.
Lecture/Demo classes are jam packed with tips, designs, techniques, and ideas that you can take home to practice on your own machine, or help you get a better understanding of longarm machines before you purchase one. More information can be covered in a lecture/demo style class. You get great value for your class fee. It’s a good chance for a beginner to watch and learn, and it is an opportunity for more advanced quilters who are confident with stitching on their own to really take home lots of tips.
Mary Beth Krapil will be showing students all kinds of tips, techniques and ideas in the lecture/demo classes at the AQS QuiltWeek event in Chattanooga using the Handi Quilter Avanté as well as the Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen.
Sue Patten will be teaching at the AQS QuiltWeek event in Des Moines in the lecture/demo room.
Openings are still available. Find your longarm classes today!
