Longarm Rental Certification Class #1

September 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


We are excited to announce Heirloom Creation’s brand new Longarm Rental program! This Longarm rental certification course to designed to give you the skills and confidence to quilt your own quilts.

“Why, yes, I did piece and quilt this entire quilt myself.”

If you are tired of paying for someone else to do your quilting for you, skip the wait time and do it yourself.

If you would like to quilt your own quilts with our BERNINA longarm quilting machine, our rental studio is now OPEN. This certification class is your only prerequisite. Once you have completed the Longarm certification class you are welcome to rent the BERNINA longarm for $25/ hour by appointment. Sessions are scheduled in increments of 3 hours.

If you wish to purchase a BERNINA Long Arm in the near future, Heirloom Creations will apply the last 6 months of rental fees towards your very own Bernina Q series machine with Pro Frame.

In this class you will learn: 

  1. Introduction to the BERNINA Touch Screen
  2. Programming the Handles
  3. Adjusting the Handles
  4. Adjusting Hydraulics
  5. Fabric, Thread, and Batting
  6. Loading the Frame
  7. Channel Locks
  8. Basting the Quilt
  9. Start, Stop Secure
  10. Set Stitch Length
  11. Bernina Stitch Regulator Modes and Manual Stitching
  12. Straight Line Quilting
  13. Advancing the Quilt

Below are links to all three of BERNINA’s Longarm Mastery Series. We recommend you review the first e-book before your class. The second book explains optional accessories available for the BERNINA long arm. And the third e-book explores the automation portion of the BERNINA long arm.

If this date or time isn’t quite compatible with your busy schedule, we invite you to reach out to us so we can arrange a personalized, one-on-one Longarm Rental Certification class tailored exclusively for you. Call us, and we’ll be delighted to accommodate your needs and ensure a remarkable learning experience.


Fee: $75 per person

It will include a QMatic screen introduction (including the quilt area, control tools, and tool center), setting and re-aligning the safe area, easy glide, micromove, block placement tools, and thread break recovery.
