LONGARM CLASS: 1 student per machine. Templates can be used to create a multitude of beautiful designs; they are not just for ditch stitching! This class is geared towards new template users and those seeking more confidence using templates. The class will cover proper technique and basic patterns created using both a straight template and as a 12” arc template. These patterns include linework and crosshatching. Students will each quilt a sampler quilt using templates and leave with the confidence to work with templates again and again! Note that this class gives quilters the opportunity to learn from Margaret in a more intimate setting, as each quilter will have their own long arm.
