Terri discovered quilting in 1989 when, interestingly enough, she was picking up cross-stitch supplies at a local craft store. She was intrigued by Eleanor Burns' book Quilt in a Day, and ended up purchasing the book, fabric and a rotary cutter that day. In 2004, she purchased a Gammill long-arm quilting system. Today, Terri runs her own business quilting for others. Terri's business is thriving -- she currently quilts between 150 and 200 quilts per year! See more of her work at

I not quite through the entire lesson, but I have definitely picked up useful information already. I have been quilting for 20 years, but always did it by hand. recently purchased a long-arm, and need to learn a new skill. This class is very helpful in accomplishing that. I had problems with skipping stitches, no one ever mentioned it could be the tension of the quilt. Just that bit of knowledge is worth what I paid for it. I hope she does more classes for intermediate and advanced quilter's. I also like that I can return and review a lesson as a refresher.

This is a very informative class for beginners I would like more advance classes.
There is just not much out on the web in reference to long-arm quilters and maybe there is not much more to know. You find a lot of freehand quilting classes but very little on computerized quilting programs for which I am interested in. The prices are a little high and I also would not have purchased the class if it had not been for the special.

Excellent video. I love the way it moves right along and gives you really important information. I have seen comments where others would like a more advanced class, has that happened yet?

I find this very helpful. I would like to have another class a little more advanced. I have several sew boards, I'm sure you are familiar with them, but I have a problem getting them to stay in place while I follow them with my stylis. It is too difficult to hold the board with one hand and move the machine with your other. Do you have any suggestions for keeping them in place?
Thanks you for your great lessons.
Lauranette, I to have getting my quilts a little too tight.

Excellent class for newbies. Useful info, clearly presented.

Would appreciate more advanced classes in longarm quilting, as I do not have a group in my area, and I cannot travel to the national conventions.
