Before renting a time – you need to take a longarm certification class:

  • Price – $25 – and you will then get a $25 credit towards your first longarm rental
  • This class will teach you the following:
    • Squaring up the quilt top and backing
    • Loading the backing batting, quilt top and thread
    • Thread tension
    • Starting/Stopping Stitches
    • Free motion quilting
    • Advancing the quilt
    • Steps to take if thread breaks or bobbin runs out
    • Removing quilt from the frame
  • Once these items are mastered, you will be given a “certificate” allowing you to rent a machine.
  • This class is required to rent a machine.   Even if you have longarmed before – you need to learn about the Innova machines before you can quilt on your own.

Advanced class:

  • Price – $25 – gives you another $25 credit towards your first longarm rental using advanced techniques (PantoVision™, AutoPilot™)
    • Basic class must be taken first as  you will be expected to know the basics before learning advanced techniques
    • You may pick either PantoVision™ or AutoPilot™
