Learn the basics and beyond from Handi Quilter Ambassador Lynda Jackson. This class is designed for Handi Quilter longarm machine owners who had training when their machine was installed and are ready to go further or for those looking for a refresher of the basics. 

The course cost is £120.

9:15 for 9:30am prompt start 
​​​​​​​4:30pm finish

Sitdown and standup longarm will be taught simultaneously on the same day as there are a number of techniques that are common to all Handi Quilter machines.

Student to machine ratio wil be a maximum of two students per machine for standup and one student per machine for sitdown. The sitdown machines will be a mix of Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen and Pfaff powerquilter 16.0. Many of the features of the two models are similar and where they are different this will be explained. The standup machines are a mix of Avante and Simply Sixteen on the Studio Frame. Many of the techniques taught apply to all machines. We will try to match you to the machine you purchased but on some occasions this will not be possible (or may be possible but only for part of the day). The Handi Quilter Amara and Forte are not available at this workshop. 


TNT - Thread, Needles and Tension - Learn and improve on this essential skill. How to use different types and weight of thread and reduce your own "tension" in the process! We'll be talking about needles and needle sizes, thread weight, types and ply, horizontal spool pin, bobbins - winding your own and prewounds.

Techniques specific to machines:

  • Sweet Sixteen / Pfaff Powerquilter Owners - managing large quilts

  • Simply Sixteen and Avante - how to load onto the Little Foot Frame or Studio Frame
