Get Acquainted with Your Machine

Is there a class you want to take, but you're not sure how to operate your machine? This is your chance to get some on-on-one instruction from one of our knowledgeable staff. Your guide will work with you to understand how to thread your machine, how to do basic stitches, load bobbins and perform basic maintenance. What do you need to do prior to class? Examine the machine to be sure you have the cords, foot pedal, presser feet and (this is a MUST) the MANUAL FOR THE EXACT MODEL YOU HAVE. Many of the older machines have manuals available for free or purchase online. Be sure to bring a PHYSICAL COPY to your appointment. CALL MODERN QUILTING AND ASK FOR AN APPOINTMENT FOR THE 'GET AQUAINTED WITH YOUR MACHINE CLASS". A few things we will need to know with your call: Model and Type of Machine, your availability/best time for an appointment, phone number and email. PLEASE ADD YOUR MACHINE MANUFACTURER AND MODEL IN THE ATTENDEE SLOT AT REGISTRATION on line (example: Janome 7700). Please make sure we have your phone number. We want to be sure we have the right instructor for you. With this information we will have your instructor call you and make an appointment time. You may reserve an hour or two hours. COST IS $40/HOUR. A complete, detailed supply list will be provided at signup.
