with Mandy Leins
Love your longarm! Get into a quilting groove as you enhance your longarm skills. Plus, learn longarm techniques for binding, appliqué and so much more.

Stitch projects of any size without tiresome quilt wrangling, and finish more fabulous quilts yourself! Alongside professional longarm quilter Mandy Leins, you'll discover tips for setting up your longarm machine and positioning your body so you can quilt longer without fatigue. Learn a simple yet ingenious way to audition designs and stabilize a quilt sandwich quickly, before taking a tour of fun quilting games that make building your longarm skills a joy. Working with two included patterns designed by Mandy, or your own quilt top, you'll also see how to handle quilting in narrow bands, sharp corners and areas of negative space. Plus, learn to appliqué and bind quilts using your longarm.

Lesson 6. Taking Longarm to New Places

"I love taking longarm classes through Craftsy, and this one did not disappoint. Though I've been longarming for a few years, this class is a great introduction to freehand techniques, something which can be difficult to master. But (Mandy) breaks things down easily, and above all, allows the student to get comfortable with the quilting, and to relax about it. Great class!"
