Learning the Longarm


I recently returned from a trip to Lake Mary, FL and the BERNINA Sewing Centre.  Melody and Steve Hicks have a wonderful store.

They have a wonderful classroom that has a great media set-up.


It was a fun filled couple of days.


On Friday we had a few informational sessions for people who were interested in learning about the new BERNINA Q 24 Longarm.

On Saturday we had a morning session on using Rulers on the Longarm machine – everyone discovered that it really is easy to incorporate ruler work into your longarm quilting.  In the afternoon we had a session on Modern Magic – quilting modern quilts.  There were to highpoint of this session – the first was talking about possible quilting designs for quilts that the participants brought in, the second was when we looked at fabric designs as inspiration for quilting designs.
If you are even in the Orlando area make sure you stop in and visit.


And – finally  – take some time out from creating and find some time for learning. Find some classes in your local area or find a conference happening where you can take part in some classes to increase your skills and spark your imagination.
