Long Arm Quilting Certification Class


Long Arm Quilting Certification Class


Plan on 3 hours for this class which will certify you to rent time and use the HandiQuilter Amara Longarm Quilting Machine at Esther’s. This is a brand new, free motion quilting machine (not a computer driven machine) that will handle any size quilt. We use a 3 zipper method to quickly install your quilts. The class will teach you all the basics of using the machine and certify you to be able to sign up for machine rental. You must call the store to schedule this class. The maximum number of people that will be taught at one time is two. Call today and start working on that pile of UFO quilt tops!

Material Requirements

  • You will need to print a crib size quilt top and backing fabric to be used in the class and for practice. Do not bring a quilt that you intend on giving as a gift, this is one that you will use just to learn to use the machine. We have quilting cottons on sale in the back of the shop if you wish to buy those rather than use from your stash.

  • You will be required to buy batting from us. The machine is quite expensive and we want to ensure that we have quality batting with no fusible to gunk up the machine.

  • For this session you will be provided with thread.

  • Once you have completed this course, you will then be able to schedule time on the machine:

    • $25 per hour of use, minimum of 2 hours

    • Full day (10-6) $160. You must schedule ahead of time to ensure that the machine is free

    • You can rent zippers from us at $5.00 per day and a $30 deposit or buy them from us ($27.00 for a set).
