Join National Educator Gail Barry-Graham for two days of classes for the Handi Quilter quilting systems. Four different classes to introduce you to the different techniques you can use to finish your quilts yourself!
Students will understand how to find support and other resources for PS Designer, along with the basics of how the software functions. Topics include:
• Overview of support resources available online
• Overview of user interface, basic functions and design catalog
• Draw basic designs using the Draw tools then add stitches and save
• Bring in a backdrop and layout a quilt
• Basic editing of designs to make them fit any space
Never one to back down from a challenge, it took Gail over 25 years to finish her first quilt. She took a day long quilting class back in the 80?s and left the class frustrated, broke, and with an
unfinished quilt top and no real support to finish it. Flash forward 25 years, Gail decided to enter the world of quilting again. She purchased a wall hanging kit and hasn?t looked back!
Her love for longarm quilting started almost immediately. She finished a quilt top and rented time on a Handi Quilter machine at her local shop. She knew, right then and there, that this was what she wanted to do. She purchased her first Handi Quilter with Pro-Stitcher? and immediately set to work finishing quilts for herself and others.
Now Gail shares her passion for quilting with students from around the world, she has taught in Australia and Europe, as well as across much of Canada and the USA. She currently uses both the HQ Capri? and HQ Amara? with Pro-Stitcher, and she creates designs with Pro-Stitcher DesignerTM, and embraces both computerized and free motion quilting.
