  • loading a quilt on to the frame

More about Instructor Heidi Stagno:  Heidi first saw a longarm quilting machine while visiting a quilt shop.  At that moment she was hooked.  “I just wanted to get my hands on that machine and drive it”. Heidi has been professionally longarm quilting for 20 years.  She has quilted over 3000 quilts and counting.  She has won many awards for her quilting and loves teaching others her techniques.  Heidi has appeared on “Quilt it” the longarm quilting show on QNN tv and has won the Handi-Quilter Way Award for the last three years consecutively.  We are excited to have her teaching at AVS!

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Thread snips, Frixion pen or other quilt friendly pen, pen and paper for notes, and camera for pictures if desired.
