great for longarm and DOMESTIC TOO!

This is a fantastic class. I really learned a lot, several new to me techniques. I think the title lends itself to only longarm quilting, but after watching the class I am so glad I did, because I am a domestic machine quilter and all of these techniques can be done on a domestic too! Take this class and expand your repertoire and have a great time doing it with Mandy!

Don't own a longarmer but loved the class

All of the exercises can apply to free motion machine quilting on your home machine, too. I really liked the idea of "games" to push yourself to try new things to keep your designs fresh. Her occasional reminder that serendipitous motifs happen and not to view mistakes as diminishing the project is always good to hear.

Also loved the applique and binding lessons. I'm ready to start cutting up scraps to make fuzzy appliques for baby quilts!

Great Class

Amanda is very comfortable with the long arm and it shows. She gave a great deal of very useful information for a free class. I also like the fact she did not try and "sell" the Gamill machine. In addition, you get free patterns. What a deal. Thank You!!
