Longarm Rental Certification

Do you have quilt tops that you'd love to finally finish, but are too large for you to quilt on your home sewing machine? If this sounds familiar, you need to take this class and become an "SMT Certified Long Machine Operator." In this class, Patti will cover loading your quilt back, batting, and top onto the machine frame as well as all of the operating functions of our Handiquilter Quilting machine.

Take this beginning longarm class to learn how to load a quilt and use the machine (Free Motion only) so you can rent our Handiquilter machines! Along with the class instruction on how to use the Handiquilter machines, you will receive 2 "L" Handiquilter Bobbins and all the tips you need to start quilting your own projects.

Once you have taken the Certification Longarm Class, you will be certified to operate the Amara and Simply 16 longarms along with the Capri Sitdown Machine.  There is a $50.00 minimum charge for the first 2 hours to rent the machine. Each additional hour is $25.00 per hour. There is a $5.00 thread fee per day.

This class is required if you would like to rent our HQ longarm machine. If you have taken this certification over 6 months ago, you must retake this class to maintain your certification.
