This Class is scheduled for those who live within a few hours driving. December isn't usually a severe weather concern but I wouldn't want anyone to travel from areas that could possible be affected by adverse weather. If you are stuck at the airport, it's a disappointment!
If we have to reschedule due to weather here, you will have a credit for when the next class opportunity arises. We resume classes early March 2024.
Our class starts out slow with identifying the parts of the system and how to maintain it. You will have your questions answered and see it in action!
This is a hands on class with 2 people per machine.
Bring your tablet, stand and power cord to the class. Extensive Handout provided. Cost 600.00 Deposit of 300.00 is due at registering.
If traveling, please request a list of hotels in the area. Hendersonville is a lovely location to visit and Asheville is less than 45 minutes away, both are popular vacation destinations.
Day 1 (Lunch break 12:00-1:30)
We begin the class with identifying parts of the IQ System with tips on maintenance and repair.
Library Maintenance guides each person in setting up their library by moving designs that will be used in class.
Beginning Panto with Intelliquilter is a fantastic class that will get you more comfortable with your IQ . 9:00 - 12:00
We begin with the basics including maintaining your IQ. Understanding maintenance allows you fewer interruptions. We will also cover advancing the quilt, starting after a stop, adjusting the outside edges, realigning and saving your work so you can begin again later. You will create a quilt map and you will know how to put it in action when you return to your machine.
