Boot Camp Training
Learning the basics of your longarm machine is crucial to the enjoyment and success of your longarming journey. This three/four day event is held at Quilts on the Corner, with each quilter and optional guest on their own dedicated machine. Class size is small so that each student receives the individual attention necessary to learn all they need to know to quilt with confidence. Classes are taught by Renae Haddadin, national quilt instructor. Renae started quilting for hire in 2002. She understands quilting for hire, every day use type quilting and quilting for show. Since that time she has taught thousands of longarmers to quilt, traveled nationally and internationally to teach, and won numerous top quilting awards, including Best of Show in Paducah, KY two times. Her methods have been proven time and again to produce both beautiful and well crafted quilts.
Check the calendar for upcoming classes and check back often as we are always adding more classes. Classes do book out months in advance, so if you don't see a class you are looking for just send us a message. The three day training course is $600 per person. Four days, including Autopilot training is $800 per person. We will pair you up with your guest so that you can work together throughout the week - This $1600 training is our gift to all of our new INNOVA longarm owners.
After completing the three days of personal hands-on training, students feel confident to move forward with their longarm quilting skills.
With the purchase of AutoPilot Mach3, we include fourth day of training to ensure you get started on the best foot possible. We will work through designing custom borders on a custom quilt top. We will continue to use many of the tools you learned on day 2 and any of the computerized tools that weren’t used on the second day of class. Each student will have their own project and get a full day of hands on practice.
