A wonderful intro to longarm quilt stitching with unique projects

I'm just getting into the mysterious world of longarm quilting. I've had lots of questions and wasn't sure where to go to get answers.

A New Look at Longarm Quilting

First, it was actually gimmicks. Thanks Craftsy for that. I thought the Instructor taught at a reasonable pace (ran it on normal speed) and was good to point out things that often experienced people forget we newbies don't know.
It was nice she looked like she enjoyed herself while teaching and was creative. I would take more classes from Ms. Leins.

I dont have a longarm .....

I don't have a long arm but I do have a quilt frame for a domestic sewing machine - which I haven't had the courage to have a go with yet. I took this class because it was free and I thought it might help. Well I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot. It was nice to hear that the instructor prefers full speed quilting rather than a fully regulated stitch. I've now enrolled on the paid class by this instructor.
