Day 4 All Day - Moving on with Pro-Stitcher
This is a wonderful opportunity to learn free motion quilting along with 2 full days of Pro Stitcher from an award winning quilter and Handi Quilter National Educator, Mary Beth Krapil. Mary Beth has appeared on QNNtv and Quilt It. Her quilts have been published in numerous books and maginex. She is coming from North Carolina to teach you her tips and tricks for quilting your quilts.
The classes on Wednesday and Thursday are for all free motion quilters at all skill levels. You do not need to be a Long Arm Quilter! You do not need to own a Handi Quilter Machine! We have 3 machines for you to try out. You will be able to adapt the techniques to your domestic sewing machine as well.
The Pro Stitcher Classes will begin by reviewing the basics on the first day and continuing through to more advanced techniques the 2nd day. These are stand alone classes, meaning that you do not have to take both of them. However, if you are new to Pro Stitcher, you will need to take Day 1 before Day 2. Mary Beth will show you how to use more features in the software that "aren't in the book."
Did you know that you can now load Pro Stitcher on your laptop and use it in "Simulation Mode" in class? OR you can disconnect your Pro Stitcher Tablet from your machine and bring it to class to use in "Simulation Mode." Either way, if you have Pro Stitcher on your machine, you can take your tablet or your laptop to class and use Simulation Mode in class. Click Here to link on the Handi Quilter Website that gives you the instructions on how to do it. (Pg 8.6 & 8.7 of the Pro Stitcher User Manual).
Of course, don't forget that we will have doorprizes and great event-only specials on machines, accessories, and gadgets too! If you have been considering purchasing a Handi Quilter Machine, this will be the perfect time to do it!
