Longarm Expo virtual/hands-on Lexington

-Are you interested in a Longarm but unsure if it's for you?

-Are you curious which type of Longarm Quilter would be the best fit for you?

-Would you like a hands-on test drive of various models?

-Do you have questions you would like to ask Experienced Longarmers before you make a purchase like this?

-Have you been waiting for the best deal before you buy?

Come to our Longarm Expo!

You will learn:

  • How to load the backing, batting, and top while keeping them square
  • How to advance the quilt.
    • Keeping everything square throughout the process.
  • A basic free motion technique.
    • Learn an easy overall design.
  • Get hands on experience to see if quilting is right for you.
  • See if the Pro Stitcher (computerized quilting) is the best fit for you.

On the second day of the class you will get your own designated time to quilt your own quilt panel.  You will get the option to use whatever model you like and whether you would like to use the Pro Stitcher or do a free motion stipple.  All the materials will be provided by us, you do not need to bring any materials.

It will be a relaxed atmosphere where all questions are welcome! We'll be happy to demonstrate any techniques you would like to see (i.e. Free motion, ruler work, computerized quilting, etc). 

Featured brands will be Baby Lock, Handi Quilter & Janome. 

Note** This is a 2 session class. The first session is virtual, April 29th from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. The second session is a 2 hour, one on one session in-store. Please pay attention to the location, dates and times when you sign up! The first part is an hour long Zoom class at 6pm on April 29th. Here you will be introduced to the different longarm options available at Thomas Sewing Center. You'll be shown the difference in features and abilities across the lineup. The second part is a hands-on session in the store! It will be in a 2 hour time slot on either April 30th, May 1st or 2nd. This hands-on part is scheduled with only 1 student at a time to allow for appropriate social distancing.

***** If you already have a longarm, this may not be the class for you. This is not a usage class - i
t's designed to give customers the experience they need to make an informed buying decision. However, if you have a Janome, Baby Lock or Handi Quilter longarm and are considering adding a Pro-Stitcher, this would be for you.***
