Longarm Rental Class
Here is how our Longarm Rental Class works: You'll have a machine to yourself and can load your first small quilt, or bring fabric to load and practice with!
In the class you will learn how to load your quilt top, backing & batting, wind your bobbins, the basics of using the machine, and the guidelines of how to work in our SWD Longarm Rental Program. You will be working on a machine by yourself with our Mentor and you will load your own small quilt, or sample fabric. Time is built into the class for you to practice quilting on your first small Free motion Long arm project!
The class fee includes the Long arm Rental instruction, a Renter Starter Kit, and rental time to quilt your first small practice quilt that day, plus you'll receive a free Mentor to help you at your first rental date following the class, because we consider that first rental date and extension of your learning :)
Supplies to bring to class:
- Fabric or Quilt top - Crib or Small Throw size (Do not bring a quilt top that is larger than a 50" on any of the sides)
- Quilt Backing fabric at least 10 inches larger than your quilt top (For example if your quilt top is 50" x 50", your backing fabric is required to be 60" x 60" minimum...a little larger than that for your backing is fine.)
- Batting that is a little larger than your quilt top
*Note: All three of the above items have to be brought as separate pieces, not basted together.
Batting and Backing is available for sale from Spring Water Designs, or let us know if you'd like to purchase an optional Long arm Practice Quilt Kit (that includes fabric for small top & backing and a crib sized batting) at an additional charge.
Learn more details about our Longarm Rental program Here or contact the shop with any questions. Note you'll also have an SWD Staff member to help mentor you at your first rental following your class free of charge. We consider your first rental to be an extension of the learning from your class :)
