  • I purchased a longarm machine. I would love to see some videos on how to get started, loading , problems when quilting. Very basic instructions on machines.

  • Various quilt-as-you-go methods.

  • I have the Baby Lock Tiara. Neither the company or the dealer offered any training. They said just practice and read the manual. I’m a visual learner. So any videos showing mid-arms would be great.

  • Anything on learning to machine quilt would be great! Books and magazines show works in progress, but cannot show speed, following designs, or how to hide those pesky stutter steps.
