Schedule of Upcoming Workshops

Longarm University provides the best education in longarm quilting and starting a longarm quilting business. The classes and workshops are taught by experienced longarm quilters who each have over 15 years of quilting experience. By attending a Longarm University you can expect to have a six to nine month head start in your quilting skills! If you are planning on starting a quilting business, you will be months ahead of someone who hasn't attended Longarm U.

If you already have a longarm quilting machine, you will learn lots of tips, tricks, new designs, patterns and techniques to make your quilting more creative and enjoyable.

 If you don't have a machine yet, don't worry. About one-third to one-half of Longarm U attendees don't have a machine. They learn what to look for in a quilting machine and will learn what kind of machine is best for their machine quilting goals. (Longarm U does NOT sell quilting machines. There is NO "sales pitch" for any kind or brand of quilting machine.)

Each day is jam packed with information, fun, friendship, good food and quilting

Longarm University offers several different types of workshops and classes. They are:

Free Hand Feathers Class

Everyone loves feathers! But feathers, although beautiful, can sometimes be the “problem child” of the quilting world. In this one day class you will learn about all types of feathers. You will learn how to make the basic feather shape and then take it and make it "work" for you! Not only will you learn the basics of making feathers, you will also learn how to make the "More Bang for the Buck" feather, Swirled Feathers, Feathered Wreaths, many different Feather Borders, All Over Free Hand Feathers, background fill-in feathers and much more! You will be seeing feathers in your sleep and making beautiful and easy feathers on your quilts. Lunch, soft drinks and snacks will be provided.

NOTE: If you quilt for others, you NEED to know how to quilt feathers! Feathers are the "cash cow" in a quilting business. I will show you my tips and tricks for making feathers that look good and fill spaces. With feathers, quilts can be finished quickly, which means more $$$ for you, and the quilts look great which makes for HAPPY CUSTOMERS!!
