Here's what's happening in the shop this week:
Our first rental certification class is scheduled for next Thursday, Oct 19th from 1 to 4 p.m. There are five spots are available. This is a prerequisite class for booking time on our long arm rental machines. 3-Hour Class: Learn how to square up your quilt and remove selvages, attach your quilt top and backing to the red snappers loading system, roll your quilt onto the leader bar, line up your pantograph, load your bobbins, and how to quilt the pantograph using a laser. Class price is $100.00. You will need to provide a small quilt top (no larger than baby quilt/small lap quilt), batting and backing for the class. You will go home with a quilted project!
Batting and backing fabrics are all available for purchase. Backing needs to be 5" bigger on each side of the quilt top to allow for loading system. Price includes use of red snappers, paper pantograph use and thread. Paper pantographs are also available to purchase if desired. Your instructions will be emailed to you once you sign up for this class. OR you can drop by our store to enroll and pick up your instructions. If Oct 19th doesn't work for you, this class will run every Thursday afternoon from 1 to 4 pm. Visit our website for registration: Rental Certification Class (thestitcherytn.com)
