HOW WILL I KNOW HOW TO USE THE MACHINE?


Linda will be with you the entire session. The first part of your session is learning the basics, how to wind a bobbin, how to attach your quilt and how to operate the machine. Some quilting techniques are covered. After basics, you may want to plan on using at least the major part of one rental session, or even a couple rental sessions, for developing
your skills

Rental sessions:

A one hour lesson is required before you begin. (Cost: $15)
Mon - Fri 9am-5pm $12 per hour.
A typical quilting session is approximately three hours long.
