HQ Event: Getting Started with Longarm Quilting



                    Getting Started with Longarm Quilting Class
Are you interested in learning more about longarm quilting? This great class is a show and tell of all the best features of the Handi Quilter machine lineup. The basics will be covered, including machine and frame maintenance, loading a quilt, setting your tension, and picking the perfect thread to stitch out the perfect design. Questions about everything quilting related – from pantographs to stencils – will all be answered in this great back to basics class. Topics Include: • The basics of machine and frame maintenance • Tensioning bobbins and longarm quilting machines • How to load a quilt onto a frame • Quilting pantographs, Groovy boards, and stencils • Rulers, basic free motion.

Sessions will be led by Waynna Kershner, a Handi Quilter National Educator.

Waynna’s passion for quilting has led her to teach quilt-making classes at a local quilt shop, and to help quilters with their projects and quilting aspirations. She enjoys working with machine quilters of all skill levels, but she especially enjoys working with new and current Pro-Stitcher owners. She loves to build confidence in quilters, using the power of the Pro-Stitcher program to put the finishing touch on their works of art. In addition to her specialty of working with Pro-Stitcher, she enjoys working with Art and Stitch software to digitize her own designs.

Waynna retired from her career in the healthcare industry, and now resides in Western Pennsylvania on a 39-acre vineyard, with her very supportive husband, Denny, and farm dog Stanley. Waynna and Denny have two adult children and one granddaughter.
