Queenie our quilting frame and our Juki quilting machine are all set up and waiting for you.
No more basting the layers together, no more squeezing it through the small throat of your home machine and no more wrestling to move it all in the right direction. Your quilt can be loaded onto our frame and ready to go in minutes and using our nifty grips, controlling the machine has never been easier. This is your opportunity to make your quilt your own.
So how does it work? Well we are changing it slightly so ready on carefully.
You will book an hour of 1-2-1 tuition and then this will lead straight into your first hire of queenie. So for example you might book your first hire as a session of 3 hours - this will be 1 hour of 1-2-1 tuition and 2 hours use of queenie.
You may choose to bring along a practice cloth to this first session and just get use to the frame and machine or you may choose to bring along a quilt top.
In preparation for your session we recommend that a small width of practice cloth is attached to the bottom so that you have some room to practice your technique (at least 30cm) and that you add practice strips to each side of your quilt which will allow you to check the tension of your stitching following a change of bobbin for example. (These need be no wider than say 3-4 inches). Max width of quilt inc any extra strips is 85".
During the 1-2-1 training you will be shown how to set everything up and do your own simple trouble shooting. We'll then share with you top tips on mastering various freemotion quilting styles tailored to your preferences.
Once you've attended a training session you will be free to book purely hire slots
HIRE - We recommend that you book a minimum of 3 hours to allow for time to load your project on to the frame. Please use the form below to contact us with your preferred times.
