Handi Quilter National Educator Event with Wayna Kershner
Hands On Classes
Leland, North Carolina
Hosted by: Quilting-N-Crafts-N-Things
Location: 112-I Village Road, Leland, NC 28451
Join us for a preview night Open House to meet the instructor, Wayna Kershner, on Friday, July 26 from 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm. She will be bringing quilts to show and discuss how they were quilted. We invite you to bring in a quilt top to receive input on how to quilt it, with or without Pro-Stitcher. Then come learn about the Basics of long arm quilting and how to use rulers on Saturday. Sunday’s 2-part session is an introduction to computerized quilting using Pro-Stitcher. All quilters are welcome, you do not need to own a longarm to attend.
If you are considering a long arm machine, Bill will give you a fantastic deal if you order within a few days of taking any class.
You will receive valuable information from any of these classes that pertain to all long arm users, but some of the information may apply to standard sewing machines.
We are offering discounted class fees because this is our first event. Classes are $30.00 for each session (normally $35-$50 per class). Sign up for all 4 sessions is $110.00.
